I did not like the book very much here is why 1 The first sentence in the book Vincent van Gogh was one of the most tragic artists who ever lived How do you explain the word tragic to a 6 or 10 years old and that s not a good way to introduce an artist 2 The second sentence in the book Nothing ever seemed to go right for him and he wasn t very happy I m not sure if those statements are accurate because many of his paintings reflect happiness 3 The way the illustrator drew the cha I did not like the book very much here is why 1 The first sentence in the book Vincent van Gogh was one of the most tragic artists who ever lived How do you explain the word tragic to a 6 or 10 years old and that s not a good way to introduce an artist 2 The second sentence in the book Nothing ever seemed to go right for him and he wasn t very happy I m not sure if those statements are accurate because many of his paintings reflect happiness 3 The way the illustrator drew the character of Van Gogh in this book made him look nothing like Van Gogh 4 Van Gogh kept using dark colors until he discovered some very colorful Japaneses artwork I d like to read this info in another source before I believe it However I did like some things in this book for example 1 The last page inculded a list of the museums that has Van Gogh s paintings I thought that was interesting 2 I liked how the author simplified the story of Van Gogh s ear to the young reader Sometimes he would get so angry and upset that no one could make him feel better This time he became so angry and upset he cut off part of his ear 3 I loved the illustration on page 15 It shows Theo introducing Van Gogh to Toulouse, Emile Bernard, Camille Pissaro, Georges Seurat, Paul Signac, and Paul Gauaginand the funny part is Van Gogh s response Gee, Theo I was hoping to meet somebody famous then beneath the illustration the author explains Hardly anyone knew it then, but many of those painters would become world famous artists someday My family loves Van Gogh so finding this book, which makes him relatable and accessible to young children is quite a thrilling surprise I love that it doesn t sugar coat his madness, although his depression is slightly sugarcoated I love the explanation of each of his periods, including compare and contrast notes I love that it uses his real paintings so that kids get to be introduced to the magic that is Van Gogh. Mike Venezia has set a high standard for children s biographies, unfortunately this book does not meet the standard of the rest in the series It seems that Venezia had a hard time explaining Van Gogh s tragic life with the result a simple shallow book compared to the depth found in his others. I m using his book for an exemplar book discovery project for my sophos It s a super picture book for younger readers it provides a concise biography of the artist My sophos will discover elements of biographical nonfiction and also get some background on one the world s great artists My favorite artist l really liked the quality of the pictures which is showing clearly how beautiful is Vincent s art, but I didn t really like the book I like this series, they bring artist alive for kids They are interesting for kids too Lots of his famous paintings are in this book. Huge fan of all of Venezia s biographies for kids Makes it so fun and enjoyable to learn about important people Van Gogh was no different, perfect wording for children on the tragic life of this famous artist. Van Gogh by Mike Venezia 9 9 185 5Non fiction Biography, All gradesI read this book during an art lesson on Vincent Van Gogh Although I would not reach for this if it was not for that lesson, I think it is very informative It is student friendly in examining Van Gogh s life He was such an interesting man, and I would recommend this book to elementary art students or anyone who likes reading biographies. I read this to a group of children in order to introduce our artist of the term The group is a hard group to teach because the ages vary so much We have two three year olds, a six year old, an eight year old, a ten year old, and a fourteen year old It can be hard to find a book that will appeal to all of those agesand still make a good group read aloud I find that these books fit the bill.
