Katie and the Sunflowers

This charming picture book playfully introduces children to art appreciation. When Katie visits the art museum on a rainy day, masterpieces from the great post-impressionists (Cezanne, Van Gogh, Gaugin) literally come to life, allowing Katie an extraordinary interactive art adventure. The author has chosen a brilliant sampling of recognizable works, such as Sunflowers, Café Terrace at night, and Still Life with Apples and Oranges. The bright illustrations and amusing presentation make this book a winner, and should spawn some definite interest in your kids to not only know more, but also create their own interpretations of the masters.
