It has lead us to google some of the actual artists' works. My daughter now wants to find some museums that have some of the pieces that are addressed in the books.
It's great how copies of some of the real paintings are included in the books, so the kids can look for those when we go to the museums!
The illustrations, although never pretending to re-create the actual paintings van Gogh was so famous for, several times presented landscapes or backgrounds that those familiar with his art would recognize. I thought that was a nice touch and might spark some additional interest in children if a parent/teacher points it out to them (or they discover it on their own).
I'll be checking out more of this series!
