Every morning, Monet wakes up early to go paint the Seine River as the light hits it differently with each movement of the rising sun.

I was really excited to read this book, seeing how the cover seemed to really capture the essence of Monet's impressionistic art style. After reading it, I can confirm that the illustrator did an excellent job with this throughout every page.

However, the text is frankly kind of dull. There is nothing lyrical or captivating about any of it. Also, as a biography, this is lacking in any amount of detail, choosing to focus only on a brief timeframe of Monet's life and work. Even the backmatter doesn't add much more context. That being said, I did like the message (stated very clearly) about art being hard work that takes time, energy, and patience.

Come for the lovely illustrations but that's really all of note.

This would be a great book for Primary or Intermediate Readers
This book is about Mark Chagall's life and all that he experienced growing up in Russia.
This would be a great book to have to display how pictures can tell a story about someone's life as there are not very many words. This book would also be helpful during a autobiography paper project as it displays one way to write about your story.

This book is beautifully illustrated story of the record setting 800ft five of the first Bathysphere in the 1930's. The author/illustrator went to great lengths to build an exciting story while giving children a moment in history. Even the 4 year old loved it.

Wow! Beautiful artwork and a fascinating story. I loved the back matter -- especially the illustrator's note.

I thought there were a few weirdly-written sentences. For example, "He tried breathing through a garden hose in his mouth -- sputtered to the surface." And "He put a washtub over his head to trap air inside -- kept popping up." Obviously, I'm a fan of the em dash -- I use it all the time. But in this case I think it muddied the meaning of the latter clauses. And it seems to me like these sentences would be awkward to read aloud.

The text leaves a few things unexplained, which is either intriguing or annoying depending on the reader. "Mysterious lights twinkled in the distance." What were the lights?! When the bathysphere begins to leak, what stops it?! Did it leak the whole time? Why did Otis and Will's eyes "play tricks on them" down in the deep?

A neat book that would be perfect to read before a trip to the aquarium.
