The beauty and heart of Monet's artistry is the subject of this graceful picture book that touches upon the passion of the painter and his exquisite work. In a text that is fewer that 200 words, Le Tord describes Monet's painting in language that is as carefully chosen and placed as brushstrokes on a canvas. Words placed in a deliberate vertical arrangment on the page encourage readers - and listeners - to savor the the images they create. Le Tord's illustrations are inspired from Monet's work. A loving, carefully crafted introduction to an artist who amazed and inspired, and to the wonder of nature that amazed and inspired him. (Ages 5-8)
