    Pocket Bios Vincent van Gogh by Patricia Crete PICTURE BOOKNON FICTION Roaring Brook Press 2015 15 9781250168863 BUYING ADVISORY EL K 3 EL – ADVISABLE AUDIENCE APPEAL AVERAGE When Vincent was little he loved to draw As he grew older he went to Paris with his uncle who was an art dealer but Vincent didn’t love being an art dealer so he became a preacher like his father While Vincent was a preacher he spoke out against horribly mining conditions and was fired so he found a new career as an artist While Vincent was alive his art wasn’t appreciated regardless of his brother Theo’s efforts Today however Vincent’s art is famous around the world How fun to read about a well loved artist and how his art came to be I love this little biography that shows the major life events of Vincent and the end includes people who influenced his life as well as a timeline I think because these books are so little readers will be drawn to them because of their cute size Reviewer C Petersonhttpskissthebookjrblogspotcom20

    Incredibly talented artist Vincent van Gogh didn't achieve fame until after his death This Pocket Bio describes his life and times and his often unhappy existence as well as his artwork and connection to his younger brother Not only does the book cover his early years but his last days including the confusion over the wounds that led to his death The book contains a timeline showing the important events in his life a map featuring six significant places snippets of four individuals whose lives intersected with him and four additional interesting facts about him I was pleased to see this artist's bio added to this series ideal for introducing youngsters to individuals who were ground breakers in various ways The information contained here is easy to read and easy to digest and might spur additional conversations between readers and the adults in their lives

    Vincent van Gogh was an artist from the Netherlands He was born in 1853 and had six brothers and sisters Vincent loved to draw and paint His brother Theo tried to sell some of his paintings but he didn’t have any luck Eventually Vincent’s mental health began failing He ended up in a psychiatric hospital for a while and then he was sent to live under the care of a physician Through all this Vincent continued to paint It wouldn’t be until many years after his death that Vincent van Gogh’s art would become world famousIn just a few pages this charming book gives a great overview on the life of Vincent van Gogh Every other page has a heading with a few short paragraphs and the opposite page has an illustration The story would be easy for young children to understand; however the book does not leave out the fact that due to Vincent’s mental health he cut off his own ear and most likely ended his own life Both events might be content better suited for older readers The illustrations are cute and support the text well At the end of the book there is timeline of Vincent’s life and a map of places in his story There are also illustrations and descriptions of significant people to him and a list of uick “did you know” factsReview originally published on Children's Book and Media Review
