The book, "Redouté: The Man Who Painted Flowers" by Carolyn Croll was a story of Redouté. It explained his life through struggles and obstacles. He lived for and loved flowers so much. No matter who told him otherwise he pursued his dream of painting flowers. He would go on to be 81 when he passed away, but he resonated and became the patron of flowers.

The book was okay. The pages had a lot of writing on them with no excitement. It became boring towards the middle of the book. The pictures didn't stand out, but all in all the story taught me something. Never give up or lose your dream. Redouté did not lose sight of that and he died doing what he loved. ( )

Carolyn Croll creates a fairy tale atmosphere in her picture book biography of Redoute. The book follows Redoute from his childhood of dreaming to be an artist to the revolution in France. He became the official flower painter for Marie Antoinette and Empress Josephine. The message this book gives out is a lesson on perseverance, as see by Redoute overcoming numerous obstacles. There is a glossary at the beginning of the book to help with pronunciation. The language is simple and easy to understand for younger readers. Like I said, it feels a bit like a fairy tale, but the art is very cute and the book itself is very informative! ( )

This book is based on the French painter Pierre-Joseph Redoute. Throughout this book we get to see what his life was like through childhood, adolescence, and even into adulthood. The son of a famous painter, Pierre was always expected to be a painter. Unlike his family, he wanted to paint what he liked, flowers, and not what they expected out of him. Pierre eventually left his home to see what his life could be. He often found enough work to just be able to eat and sleep but then would also come into contact with out artists. After going to aid his brother in Paris, Pierre began to admire the flowers in the Kings garden and began to rekindle his love for painting real flowers. He soon was able to do what he loved and earn money with the help of a botanist who needed someone to illustrate his book. This sparked others interest for him and eventually went to work for Marie Antoinette and after Napoleon Bonaparte's wife Josephine. We are able to see his growth as an artist, painter, teacher, friend, and person through this book. I think that this book would be great for an art lesson or even a history lesson about this era. I think that students would enjoy getting to understand all the trials and hard times he had to go through to get to where he wanted to be. ( )

There is no information in the book to tell if the author is creditable. The only fact is that she was inspired to write this book after visiting a museum. The information in this book is in chronological order. It starts off with Redoute's childhood and who inspired him to enjoy it. Then it explains his love for flowers. The book talks about the royal people he worked for. It includes the good times and the hard times throughout his life. There is a lot of information and it is simple to read. I would read this in my class when talking about art history. Also, it is about inspiration. One lesson is to stick with doing what makes you happy, not what makes you wealthy. ( )
