A Magical Day with Matisse Reviews
I have a few of the books in the series. On the plus side, I really like the concept - picture books introducing famous artists to young children. What could be cooler than that?Unfortunately, I don't like the writing that much. Prose would be perfectly suited for these pictures, but instead the author keeps trying to write it in rhyme, and it falls very flat. The whole thing seems trite, and a lot of the rhymes and meter end up sounding forced.I'd still be buying the books, despite this, because I like the idea so much, except we've run into a new snag - they're not very well put together. By which I mean that all of the books we have in this series started to fall apart within a year, a year and a half of their purchase. They're board books, and the nieces are actually too old to "need" board books - they're not rough on the books at all. This should not be happening. The shoddy construction *will* keep me from buying more books, where awkward text wouldn't.If these books ever get printed in paperback, or maybe as a hardcover compilation, I'll probably buy them. But I cannot recommend that anybody buy the board books.
Lovely way introduce my toddler to Master Matisse.
This one was the most readable, and I liked it more than the others in the series. Nothing spectacular to write home about. I think these books are much better in theory thank in actuality. I would still buy something like this for my girls to look at, but I would not read this at story time.
Rhyming story told as a journey through the famous paintings of Matisse in a board book. The rhythm would be good for reading to young children; although, some rhymes seem forced, they are connected to the works of art in a way that helps kids see what each piece is about.
Where were all these awesome board books when I was first buying board books for my newborn babies? This book is incredible! An art appreciation lesson, it weaves a tale from the paintings of Matisse on each page. I even learned something; I want a print of Dance (II).
He likes it because it's beautiful. Truth be told, it could be written better. (lots better, says Adam)
Matisse paintings paired with short, rhyming verses.
Bright paintings and rhyming text make this a great way to introduce children to art.
