This book in the series was just ok. It wasn't good, but it wasn't disappointing. I think it's important to subject children to good art early on, but I am not sacrificing language for illustration. I almost think a board book with these paintings would be best left without a plot. I would like to see a large board book with perhaps a legend for counting or searching.
Too advanced for my infant right now, but I'll come back to it later.

This is one of a series of artist-themed board books (mostly Impressionists, but there's a Picasso one, too). Painting reproductions are accompanied by simple rhymed descriptions of the images. May be useful for simple picture study with toddlers, although Charlotte Mason purists will note that there's some interpretation going on in the descriptions.

My 14-month-old loves turning the pages and looking at the paintings in this book. I can only read about half the words on each page before it's on the next page, but any book he brings us to "read" is a winner. I'm reviewing this before looking for similar books in the series or by these authors.
Great book for students to learn reading skills. A lot of rhyming and rhythm. The illustrations are gorgeous too.
Slightly wordy for a board book but lovely none the less.
