    Mike Venezia has set a high standard for children s biographies, unfortunately this book does not meet the standard of the rest in the series It seems that Venezia had a hard time explaining Van Gogh s tragic life with the result a simple shallow book compared to the depth found in his others.

    Children s books can be an invaluable tool in the classroom no matter what subject is being taught Not only are there books about math or science but there are even books about artists In elementary school a huge lesson is on famous artists Reading from a textbook can be boring, however this book about Van Gogh is far from that A majority of the illustrations are Van Gogh s actual paintings, the other illustrations are then cartoons Then there is the biography of Van Gogh s life as well It Children s books can be an invaluable tool in the classroom no matter what subject is being taught Not only are there books about math or science but there are even books about artists In elementary school a huge lesson is on famous artists Reading from a textbook can be boring, however this book about Van Gogh is far from that A majority of the illustrations are Van Gogh s actual paintings, the other ill...

    The quality of the art reproductions leaves something to be desired, but I love the play between the art, the cartoons, and the narrative text This is a good transition to real books from comics, and a good intro to the biography genre Try the whole Mike Venezia series.
