  The Radiant Child is a wonderful nonfiction picture book about an artist. It tells a great story about Jean-Michel and is inspiring to young people. When young children hear stories about people who are like them and hear all the accomplishments they made in their life, it gives them hope and tells the kids that they can do that too/5(99).   This is an awesome art book for kids of all ages. The pictures are organized by topic, such as family, numbers, counting, senses, animals rather than by country, artist or time period. While all the paintings are by skilled artists, some are very familiar while others are much less so/5(43).

An international bestseller, millions of readers have found it to be an invaluable guide to living the artist’s life. Still as vital today—or perhaps even more so—than it was when it was first published one decade ago, it is a powerfully provocative and inspiring work/5(K). Stuart Little is a American children's novel by E. B. White. It was White's first children's book, and it is now widely recognized as a classic in children's literature. Stuart Little was illustrated by the subsequently award-winning artist Garth Williams, also his first work for children.

PORT TOWNSEND — The world had gotten dark for this girl. Known also as the Madonna of the Book, this painting represents the Virgin and Child in a domestic setting, intent on reading a volume, perhaps a Book of Hours. A window is open on the landscape at twilight, but the diffused light which transforms the space into a mystical setting seems to emanate from the figures themselves.
