    One thought on “Van Gogh and the Post-Impressionists for Kids: Their Lives and Ideas, 21 Activities”

    1. This book about Van Gogh and his fellow European artists in the late nineteenth century provides a good introduction for both children and adults. The author focuses on Van Gogh for more than half of the book with biographical information and reproductions of his most famous paintings. Then there is short biographical information on several other artists including Paul Gauguin, Henri De Toulouse-Lautrec, Paul Signac, Emile Bernard and a few others, with a reproduction of a painting by each. Thro [...]

    2. I absolutely love van Gogh's art and was quite eager to read this children's book to learn more about him. Carol Sabbeth does a great job of summing up van Gogh's history as well as putting his life and art in a greater context. She helps the reader understand what was going on at the time in the art world as well as what was going on personally in van Gogh's life, what kind of person he was, what influenced him, and how he came to be an artist. I found that she presented the perfect amount of i [...]

    3. I think you'd need to ask a kid about this book, as I thought the text was quite comfortable for an adult reader. I learned quite a bit -- the book doesn't pull any punches when talking about Van Gogh's battle with mental illness, and yet, nothing is inappropriate for a child. I'd probably recommend reading this with your child so that you could discuss topics like this.The activities were clearly kid-focused.I've finished the Van Gogh part of the book, and I'm now reading about the post-Impress [...]

    4. A wonderful book for children who love art and/or want to learn more. This book gives a more in-depth look at a few post-impressionist artists and their work. I liked the activities listed in the book for kids - but I would definitely say it is aimed more towards children 8 years old and up. The "Art Detective" spotlights were great in showing you how to "spot" a painting by a certain artist.

    5. Van Gogh and the Post-Impressionists for Kids: Their Lives and Ideas, 21 Activities (2011-Biography)I thought this book was full of information about Van Gogh and other artists but I don't think the text is appropriate for kids. I know my students would not be able to comprehend the text on their own.The book also had many art activities that can be completed in the classroom. There are a few that I would like to try.

    6. this book is awesome. As a big kid at heart, i thought it was an excellent set of activities and ways to educate about the impressionism years. I myself am definitely going to be making one of those shoebox peep boxes

    7. This is an excellent resource for students and teachers. Very well-written and exceptionally detailed, with creative projects for inspiring interest in art and art history. Loved it!
