Editorial Reviews:

Mary Cassatt is most famous for her paintings of mothers and babies, and that's what first attracts "Claire" because she has a new baby sister. But through research for her class report Claire learns many surprising facts about Mary: she was an American who lived in France nearly all her life, she never married or had children herself, and she became a professional artist at a time when respectable ladies simply did not do that! With beautiful reproductions of Mary Cassatt's best-loved paintings as well as lively childlike pictures that illustrate her life, this Smart About Art book gives children a wonderful "portrait" of a great artist and fascinating woman.

Illustrated by Jennifer Kalis.

Summary: Terrific Children's Book about Mary Cassatt!
Comment: This is a wonderful book about Mary Cassatt. It is done from the perspective of a child who admires Mary Cassatt paintings and is in the process of learning more about her. She even copies some of her paintings in photography and drawings. Very sweet and helpful in motivating a child about painting or learning more about painters. They no longer have to fear being a nerd, learning about painting is cool!

Summary: Charming introduction to Mary Cassatt
Comment: I thought this book was really charming and that its combination of prints by Mary Cassatt and the line drawings of the child who is telling the story made this very appealing to me. But I am an adult and don't know how a child would react to this. Perhaps I can field test it on a great-niece.
