I adore the illustrations in this latest entry in the inspiring Little People, Big Dreams series. In this title, young readers get to meet Louise Bourgeois.

Young Louise learned the importance of art to her sense of well-being. It helped her in coping after her mother died and with her fears throughout her life.

As a student, Louise showed her work to Fernand Leger who encouraged her to become a sculptor. Readers find out that another art lover, an art history painter was interested in her…and they married.

It took many years for Louise’s talent to be recognized; she was 70 when the Museum of Modern Art showcased her works. So, readers will discover that it is important to persist and to keep to their vision of what they hope to achieve.

This is another excellent entry in this long running series. Get to know the “grandmother of modern art.”

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title. All opinions are my own.
