My daughter did a project on George Gershwin and I wanted to get a book that an 8 year old would actually read. She loved the pictures and the words were written so simply so she was able to understand everything. I'm very happy with this purchase and look forward to her reading about more artists.
As a teacher, I love this series! My goal is to teach my 3rd graders about the famous artists and composers. This series makes it easy, fun, and interesting!
This whole series of "Getting to Know", whether it be about composers or artists is fantastic. It should be a required part of any music program. I am sorry there aren't more titles available.
LOVE this series for my grand kids.
good for children
Great book for children. Informative and accurate with wonderful artwork. A must for a young prodigy. It came beautifully wrapped and shipped quickly. Couldn't be happier
Just as listed
This is one in a wonderful series of books intended to introduce young readers to the lives of famous composers. The story of George Gershwin not only tells about his life, but also gives children a feel for the time he lived in. Venezia uses details about Gershwin as a child to draw youngsters into the story. They can empathize with the young George who is seen as a "nerd" by his peers, because of his love for music. Yet he still enjoyed sports, particularly roller skating. As always, Venezia's illustrations are wonderful and I particularly enjoyed the photographs and artwork that accompanied them. All the parts come together to give children an interesting and enjoyable picture of the man and his music.
