MOBI × DOC Through Georgia's Eyes 9780805077407 À RACHEL VICTORIA RODRIGUEZ À Georgia O'Keeffe saw the world differently from most people As a child she roamed the prairie with a sketch pad in her hand struggling to capture on paper what she saw all around her At art school she learned to speakRuggling to capture on paper what she saw all around her At art school she learned to speak in paint on canvasBut Georgia felt The pictures were what made Georgia O'Keeffe so famous The pictures in this biography do her justice the text does not I thought that based on the pictures in the book I was able to tell what made Georgia O'Keeffe famous Her colors were vibrant and the simplest image was made elegant and beautiful However the text was rather bland unlike the illustrations It was interesting to me how the story told her life as if it were present day I'm still not sure what the author's purpose was in doing so At the end of the story you see that the author is trying to teach the reader that her work can still be seen today in museums I think it is a nice connection and closing statement for the reader This is a nice picture book representing what Georgia O'Keeffe truly was an artist It gives enough information that the reader has an understanding of what her life was like and how her work came to be I'd recommend the story to art teachers that are focusing on her form of art so that the students had some background knowledge of Georgia O'Keeffe

Confined by city life She longed for vast expanses of space and she found it in the red hills and silent deserts of New Mexic I loved the illustrator's decision to use collaged paper to create this story The end flap of the dust jacket reveals that this was Paschkis' first time producing a story in this fashion Cheers to her I especially enjoyed the collaged illustrations when large expanses of land are shown in an array of colors and shapes revealing a diversity in landscapes as O'Keefe traveled from prairie to city to desert I am always on the look out for picturechildren's books that would be applicable to share with YA's and I think this would be a wonderful book to share with those who desire to learn about great artists The struggle for women to become artists is even discussed in this brief story without sounding didactic in the least

Through Georgia's EyesGeorgia O'Keeffe saw the world differently from most people As a child she roamed the prairie with a sketch pad in her hand st 35 STARS I don't know much about O'Keeffe other than just a casual knowledge so I can't rate this as a fan or scholar It received starred reviews from Booklist and Kirkus Reviews though I see mixed reviews here on GoodReads I very much enjoyed it and feel it gives a very good impression of the artist's personality in a few carefully chosen words The storytelling feels almost poetic to me and the illustrations are evocative of O'Keeffe's style without trying to be copy cat I do think that it would have been nice to include at least one of her actual works in the back as well as an actual photograph of her just because I think it's important children see the actual artist's work I know one can look these things up uickly but for kids much better to just include something in the book itself in case they don't take that extra step so docking half a star for that There is an Author's Note with a bit detail on O'Keeffe's life The very short Bibliography is actually at the front of the book on the copyright page
