A gentle, imaginative story about a little girl who interacts with the objects and people in several famous paintings. My students enjoyed reading this as a follow-up to the beautiful [b:Vincent's Colors|19599|Vincent's Colors|Victoria Charles|http://d.gr-assets.com/books/1347456434s/19599.jpg|20823]. ( )

This book is about a little girl who goes to an art museum with her grandmother and then she suddenly finds herself inside the paintings of many famous artists. This is a fun book that could be used to teach about famous artists mentioned in this book: Van Gogh, Gaugin, Cezanne. ( )

Katie goes to the museum with her Grandmother and sees "Sunflowers" by van Gogh. She's intrigued and reaches into the picture to retrieve seeds and she steps into the painting! Other post impressionist artists are explored. Link to Laguna Beach Pageant of the Masters where they act out paintings on stage. http://www.pageanttickets.com/

Wonderful book continuing the story of Katie and her adventures. Today she learns about the artists: Van Gogh, Gaugin and Cezanne. ( )

I absolutely love this book. It wouldn't be a good book to read word-for-word to a young child, but a pre-schooler and kindergartener is sure to love the colors and fanciful events. It's just the kind of book to capture a child's imagination and draw them into a world built upon paintings. It's also a decent introduction to the idea of art in general.

Very good book, and I highly recommend it. ( )
