    One thought on “My Name Is Georgia: A Portrait by Jeanette Winter”

    1. داستان به صورت اتوبیوگرافی نوشته شده اما بعضی قسمتها به سوم شخص هم تبدیل میشه. پرسپکتیو مناسبی از زندگی این هنرمند به ما میده. زندگی شخصیش رو توضیح میده، نشون میده چه چیزی الهام بخشش بوده، باعث شده خلاقیتش به اوج برسه و باعث شده هنرش ارتقاء پیدا کنه. روایتش کوتاهه و برای کودکان [...]

    2. This is a sample, gentle introduction to the life and art of Georgia O'Keefe. I liked it but feel it might be a bit dull for little kids unless they are already pretty interested in art. The illustrations are good but do not have the same feel as O'Keefe's work, which is I assume what Winter was trying for. I did like the way they break the implicit frame of the square. I was a bit puzzled by the omnipresent brown striping on O'Keefe's face.One thing I didn't like was the emphasis on O'Keefe's d [...]

    3. This is a lovely introduction to Georgia O’Keeffe’s art but, even though I liked the illustrations, I’d actually rather have had her actual paintings be the illustrations. Winter seemed to try to mimic O’Keeffe’s style, and sort of got it, but I found the differences distracting. I guess for readers who haven’t seen O’Keeffe’s actual art works, these illustrations could work okay.This did make me (and not for the first time) want to read about O’Keeffe’s life. Was she really [...]

    4. Genre: BiographyGrade level: Lower/Intermediate/Upper Elementary This book about an artist shows her life and all her travels. It shows her techniques and some of her art. It is an easy read that students could read, or could be read to.

    5. Great for bringing a young reader into the world of Georgia O'Keefe, with sparing first-person text and child-friendly illustrations in the style of the artist. Good book for the elementary crowd.

    6. Winter, Jeanette (Author & Illustrator). My Name is Georgia: A Portrait (1998). Jeanette Winters illustrated the life of Georgia O'Keefe and wrote about her life by writing as if Georgia herself were narrating and explaining about her own life. What comes though is how much of an individual Georgia was even compared to her other four sisters. Georgia did not dress and comb her hair like her sisters and stood out. Georgia had a way to do things in her unique way and did not partake in the sam [...]

    7. This is the story of Georgia O’Keefe. The author introduces the reader to the life of this amazing artist. Starting from when she was a little girl up until the day she passes, the reader hears the story from Georgia. “When I was twelve years old, I knew what I wanted—to be an artist.” When I was small, I always played alone. I did things others did not. I let my hair fly free when my sisters wore braids. I copied pictures from the art teacher’s cabinet ever Saturday. When I was at hom [...]

    8. My Name Is Georgia is a part of my text set titled, "Creative Thinking: If You Can Think It, You Can Do It, And Change The World Too!". I chose this biography of Georgia O'Keefe for two specific reasons, one because Georgia O'Keefe is an artist and many children associate creativity with creating some type of art, I thought this would be a good place to start in a unit on creative thinkers and how they can change the landscape in which we live. Second, the life of Georgia O'Keefe highlights the [...]

    9. A picture book biography of the artist Georgia O'Keeffe. Narrated in first person, this is a short overview that beautifully captures O'Keeffe's individuality and creative journey. The evocative illustrations combined with the quotations makes this book an insightful introduction for younger readers.

    10. Georgia sees the world differently. She drew things BIG so people could see how she saw things. She painted everything, statues, skies, flowers, bones, and the Earth. She loved to paint. She did it until she died at the age of 98. Now, her paintings are known all over the world, and through them, we can see what she saw.Why I liked this book – First of all, it has wonderful, I repeat, WONDERFUL, illustrations. Second, I like that it is nonfiction and about an artist I really liked learning abo [...]

    11. From the time she was just a young girl, Georgia O'Keeffe viewed the world in her own way. While other girls played with toys and braided their hair, Georgia practiced her drawing and let her hair fly free. As an adult, Georgia followed her love of art from the steel canyons of New York City to the vast plains of New Mexico. There she painted all day, and slept beneath the stars at night. Throughout her life Georgia O'Keeffe followed her dreams, and so found her way to become a great American ar [...]

    12. This is an interesting perspective on the artist, Georgia O'Keeffe. It's written as if it's an autobiography, but has third person tidbits thrown in as well. It describes her inspiration and creative musings about her art as well as the evolution her art made during her lifetime. There is a short narrative on each page and the book is written for children, but our girls weren't interested in listening to it, so I read it myself. I think more adults than children would appreciate this story.

    13. This is a wonderful book for children in primary grades to learn about how Georgia O'Keefe grew up to be an artist. The illustrations capture the wonder that Georgia describes in herself as she wandered through various settings to capture their beauty through paintings. It could be a great introduction to a unit on artists.

    14. This was an interesting biography about Georgia O'Keefee. It tells what she did when she was younger and how she was just kind of living day to day and just being a teenager basically. It shows her adulthood as well and how she followed her dream of doing art and she talked about New York city and New Mexico. This book teaches children to do what they love and never give up.

    15. Beautifully done. The tone of the book really sets it apart from others. It just felt precious and special. Like looking inside the head of someone whose passion flowed through her veins. She was made to be an artist to create beauty. I thought the ending was beautiful as well. It really touched me. I saw a lot of mixed reviews, but I think anyone artistic can relate to this book.

    16. JW has summarized the life of O'Keeffe by using a picture and a fact on each page. I think this would capture the imagination of any child interested in art. There aren't any images of O'Keeffe's actual paintings, which is too bad. (And the drawings of O'Keeffe as a child are disconcerting because the faces are of a much older person.)

    17. If I ever move into another life where collecting art is a possibility, I would own at least one of Georgia O'Keefe's paintings. The flowers are my favorites, but I also love the desert landscapes and the bones. This picture book biography hints at the beauty and power of an O'Keefe painting while giving the broad strokes of her life and vision.

    18. I really liked this book. I love Georgia O'Keeffe and her paintings. I also have recently realized that I like Jeanette Winter's illustrations a lot too. This book was simple and lyrical and great. The discussion of how difference Georgia was is a bit over the top, but otherwise enjoyable.

    19. My three-year-old is absolutely dleighted with this book. He wants it read to him over and over. He is now eager to begin painting flowers and wants very much to examine some bones. His favorite images are of the jack-in-the-pulpit and the steer skull held up against the blue sky.

    20. Inspiring young biography of Georgia O'Keeffe, though not as visually stimulating as Georgia in Hawaii, My Name is Georgia, is certainly a worthy introduction to a true, American Original. This is also an engaging title, suitable for reading aloud - it inspires discussion and elaboration.

    21. Blurring the line between biography and autobiography, Winter combines her own words with O'Keefe's words to create a 1st person narrative of O'Keefe's life appropriate for young readers. All illustrations are Winter's but are done in the style of O'Keefe.

    22. This is a nice picture book biography for young readers and listeners and a good way to introduce them to Georgia O’Keeffee’s life and work. Of the few children's biographies I have read thus far on her this is my favorite and would be a welcome addition to any elementary classroom or library.

    23. This book I thought was a little boring, and I probably wouldn't want to present it to my students. A plus is that it contained great pictures!!

    24. Well written, appropriate and interesting for even as young as a class of 3 year old students. They were engaged attentive with both illustrations and text.

    25. Written as though O'Keefe were telling you about herself. Shows the landscapes that were dominant in her work; discusses her connection to that landscape.

    26. A beautiful biography of Georgia O'Keefe intended for children. It may inspire a child's innate creativity as Georgia communicates through her art, what she sees.
