The Museum

The Museum
by Susan Verde, illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds
Abrams Books for Young Readers, 2013. Unpaged. Picture Book

“When I see a work of art, something happens in my heart.”  As a little girl tours an art museum, each artist inspires her. Degas makes her want to dance,
Van Gough’s Starry Night makes her feel “twirly-whirley, twinkly, sparkly, super swirly.” She mimics  Rodin’s The Thinker.  The Scream by Munch makes her feel “frightful” while a Picasso portrait brings forth a silly face.  Abrams has always been known for their artistic publications.  Illustrator H. Reynolds was the perfect choice for a light hearted approach to the beginner’s appreciation of the Masters. Very child friendly!
