I always look forward to reading the latest entries in this wonderful series that features little people with big dreams. This time Ms. Vegara Sanchez is writing about the artist Basquiat. She is joined by the illustrator who contributes a great deal to the look and feel of this title.
Young readers will learn that Jean-Michel loved art from the young age of four. He found his calling early in life. Children will learn that he had his own unique contributions to make to the art world and that he became close friends with another well known artist, Andy Warhol.
Kids who read this book will know that art can be made in many ways. That is a good lesson to learn along with the reminder to follow one’s passion.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.
