Give young readers a lesson in art history
Celebrate art with Linnea in Monet's Garden. To celebrate the book’s 25th anniversary, Sourcebooks is bringing Linnea in Monet’s Garden back to print this October to inspire a new generation! Young readers join Linnea on her art-inspired adventure in France: visiting Monet's garden, standing on his famous Japanese bridge, gazing at the water lilies, stopping by Notre Dame, watching the sun rise over the Seine, and stepping into the colorful world of the impressionists.
This book is a wonderful addition to any aspiring artist's collection.Young readers will be fascinated by the reproductions of Monet's paintings, family photographs and beautiful watercolor illustrations of Linnea's adventures. If you're also planning to bring your young artist to Paris, the anniversary edition includes a list of museums and things to do in Paris. It's amazing that 25 years after it's orginal publication, this book is still a great resource that captures the magic of art.
