The Met Georgia O’Keeffe
She saw the world in a flower
by Gabrielle Balkan
This book provides a wonderful introduction to Georgia O’Keeffe. It is gorgeously and vibrantly illustrated and filled with details of Georgia’s life, the people that she knew, the places that were important to her and her evolution as an artist. It is geared toward elementary school age children.
This title also a timeline, glossary and a section titled “Try This Yourself.” Throughout, the author invites children to engage. She encourages them to observe their world and to paint or draw within it. Hopefully, some young readers creativity will be sparked.
I think that this book is very well done. Young artists should enjoy learning more about this woman who learned, grew and did things her way.
Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
