Pleasant fiction about what the life of the little girl in a real painting might have been like, and under what circumstances it might have been painted. The story of the littlest child being chosen because all the older siblings were too busy isn't too probable given the cost and social prestige of portraiture at the time, but it would be a fun project for elementary school kids.

My three year old daughter LOVES this book, and asks to read it most nights for her bedtime story. The illustrations are gorgeous, and I enjoy reading it to her just as much as she loves hearing it.
