19th November

Claude Monet is probably the most studied artist in my school and because of this I have collected a large number of books about him and his paintings. He is the subject of an artist study in Kindergarten. His waterlily paintings are revisited when Year 2 study water and he seems to 'pop up' at other times too, as he did this year when we looking at bridges in art. If he is popular at your school too and you are looking for books for a very young audience these are perfect:
* A Picnic With Monet by Julie Merberg & Suzanne Bober (board book)
* Claude Monet: Sunshine and Waterlilies by True Kelley
* Claude Monet: The Magician of Colour by Stephan Koja (Adventures in Art)
* For the Love of Claude by Brenda V.Northeast
* Katie and the Waterlily Pond by James Mayhew
* Linnea in Monet's Garden by Cristina Bjork & Lena Andersen (there is a DVD too)
* Monet's Impressions by Claude Monet
* Once Upon a Lily Pad: Love in Monet's Garden by Joan Sweeney & Kathleen Fain
* Philippe in Monet's Garden by Lisa Carmack
* The Magical Garden of Claude Monet by Laurence Anholt
