Henri Matisse once said, “What I dream of is an art of balance, of purity and serenity, devoid of troubling or depressing subject matter.” It’s no wonder his works are loved by children everywhere. In this charming book, Vanessa Hié and Veronique Massenot create a world based on Matisse’s vision, in which a mermaid is thrust out of the sea by a massive storm. Stranded in a tree, not knowing how she can return to her home without legs, she meets a parakeet who is so moved by her plight he finds a way to help her. Vanessa Hié’s gorgeous, deeply hued illustrations incorporate the shapes and colors found in Matisse’s original masterpiece, which is reproduced at the end of the book. Massenot’s simple but profound story of bravery and friendship is a delight to read. Together, the words and pictures tell a timeless story, while introducing young people to Matisse’s artistry.

This fascinating look into the world of the artist Frida Kahlo introduces children to the themes that infused Kahlo’s vibrant paintings, while demonstrating how her life influenced her art.

Through illustrations of her work and photographs of Kahlo and her family, children are encouraged to learn about her life, artworks, and important relationships. An engaging text and gorgeous reproductions call attention to Kahlo’s use of bold color and natural imagery, as well as her ingenious use of perspective, collage, and varying styles. Children will learn much about creative self-expression through this beautifully designed and insightful book about Kahlo’s life and work.

Against a pastel backdrop of falling leaves and raindrops, a young boy learns how to make new friends and cherish the old. “Two hundred and sixty-nine days,” counts a freckle-faced, rosy-cheeked boy. His goodbye to his best friend is still fresh within his young heart. Though his companion has moved away, she sends surprise notes and chocolate bars by post, assuaging his pain and bringing a smile to his face. The support of his loving family and the arrival of a new neighbor with her striped cat combine with his optimism to slow the rainfall and welcome the possibility of a new friendship. Change is a constant in the worlds of adults and children alike. Friends Forever’s poignant story addresses change’s unexpected arrival and, through a softly colored palette, shows that change can be soothed by fond memories. The poetic text by Norwegian author Roald Kaldestad narrates the journey of the protagonist as he teaches readers to embrace the present and appreciate the joys of a bluer sky.
