" This is an excellent resource for students and teachers. Very well-written and exceptionally detailed, with creative projects for inspiring interest in art and art history. Loved it! " said.

" this book is awesome. As a big kid at heart, i thought it was an excellent set of activities and ways to educate about the impressionism years. I myself am definitely going to be making one of those shoebox peep boxes... " said.

" A wonderful book for children who love art and/or want to learn more. This book gives a more in-depth look at a few post-impressionist artists and their work. I liked the activities listed in the book for kids - but I would definitely say it is aimed more towards children 8 years old and up. The "Art Detective" spotlights were great in showing you how to "spot" a painting by a certain artist. " said.

"I think you'd need to ask a kid about this book, as I thought the text was quite comfortable for an adult reader. I learned quite a bit -- the book doesn't pull any punches when talking about Van Gogh's battle with mental illness, and yet, nothing is inappropriate for a child. I'd probably recommend reading this with your child so that you could discuss topics like this.

The activities were clearly kid-focused.

I've finished the Van Gogh part of the book, and I'm now reading about the post-Impressionists.
" said.

"This book about Van Gogh and his fellow European artists in the late nineteenth century provides a good introduction for both children and adults. The author focuses on Van Gogh for more than half of the book with biographical information and reproductions of his most famous paintings. Then there is short biographical information on several other artists including Paul Gauguin, Henri De Toulouse-Lautrec, Paul Signac, Emile Bernard and a few others, with a reproduction of a painting by each. Throughout the book there are projects to enhance the understanding of how various paintings were made. I enjoyed the introductions and did not feel that I was reading a children's book. " said.
