HASH(0xa27963d8) out of 5 stars HOW TO USE THIS BOOK TO HELP CHILDREN APPRECIATE ART Sept. 24 2015
By Rob Natiuk - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a painter most appealing to children because of her subject matter – emphasis on the life between mothers and children. She has been classed among the impressionists but her style is very accessible to us because it is also realistic.

For instance, “The Boating Party” captures a mother in a boat being oared by the father. The mother holds her baby. The colors and details are subdued. I suggest letting children look at this painting quietly for a minute or two, and then give their impressions.

A number of the selected paintings are of women, some beautiful, some ordinary, in everyday settings. For these I’d let children gaze on a painting and then give their impressions – remember, these are “impressionistic” paintings. Then, after they respond to separate works, have them react to all of them as one. Then they could do the same with the paintings of children – at the beach, girl with a straw hat, little girl with her nanny, girl with pink sash, breakfast in bed, “Sara holding a cat.”

The best learning experience would be for the children “to be the painter, Mary Cassatt” and draw, water color or paint in her style for a bit. Encourage them to get their “impressions” into their works, not so much what they see but what they feel.

These series of books are mere collections of these various artists. In many cases children will benefit from talking about them with knowledgeable teachers and readers. You can, of course, get vast information on all of these artists on the internet or other books. I recommend that.

I was rather disappointed in this booklet. It could have been quite a bit longer and it could have TRIED to bring new ideas to the table.
HASH(0xa2796990) out of 5 stars Nice pictures and Good Introduction to Artist painter Mary Cassatt July 7 2014

I totally appreciate this book. I have learned a lot about Mary Cassatt and her painting style by looking at the pictures in this ebook. It isn't easy to find books of good art for children, or even just to introduce you to a valued past artist. I found it informative and interesting enough to share with my children. It is not easy to find good material with pictures of art for children. This fits the bill and is interesting enough to discuss the art aspects with young art appreciators and perhaps even aspiring painters. Well done! Thanks. :)
HASH(0xa27969b4) out of 5 stars Ok, now I get it! April 16 2014

Edit: Okay so after a month, I found out to HOLD the photo, and it will expand. I stand corrected. Whew! Rating amended.

I snagged all of these in the series today, but guess what? I'd thought the paintings would render beautifully on my 8.9" Fire. Yeah, no. There's about 8 words of text for each painting, which are literally about 1.5 inches square, and a bunch of blank page.

I wanted to use these as a teaching aid, but the images are far too tiny. So sad; neat books.
HASH(0xa2796c18) out of 5 stars Not just for kids! (But as to artists that paint children, she is the best I've found so far) July 10 2014

Paintings definitely have a Victorian feel to them as to ladies in gowns and settings, but this artist truly captures kids like none other. "Children on the Beach" and "Sara Holding a Cat" are superb although my personal favorite is "Breakfast in Bed" for the look on Mom's face while holding onto her daughter. Great stuff!
