" "painting flowers may be something small,but it is what I do best,because it is what I love most." " said.

" Good introduction to the French artist/naturalist and to this period of French history. Marie Antoinette, Josephine, and the gardens at Malmaison are featured. " said.

"This is an excellent picture book to introduce Redouté to young readers. Redouté was a flower painter for Marie Antoinette and was even called to her Bastille prison in her final days to paint a rare cactus that had bloomed. Later, he was requested to illustrate a book written by the official botanist of Napoleon Bonaparte's wife Josephine. "Redouté: The Man Who Painted Flowers" features Tomie dePaolo-esque illustrations that complement the story very nicely. However, you should definitely do a quick online search to admire the gorgeous flora and fauna artwork of Pierre-Joseph Redouté. The 11-year-old and I read this to complement a French world history lesson, but this would make a great tie in for an art lesson as well." said.
