45 months - love Barbara Cooney's illustrations and her stories. I really enjoyed this one the only downfall... It's a long one which makes it really hard to pull out and read as a bedtime story. O always likes to read 4 or more books before bed which is just not possible with this one. Still a lovely story and the illustrations are beautiful American Folk. ( )

The main character of this book has big dreams! She wants to be a painter. Would be great intro into art and would also be good for a grand conversation about dreams students could have for themselves.

I did not enjoy this book nearly as much as Miss Rumphius. The illustrations were beautiful though. Worth a look. ( )

This is an enjoyable tale told by Barbara Cooney about her mother becoming an artist. The story is beautifully illustrated and accurate in its depiction of life for the wealthy in the U.S during the 1800's. ( )
