Children's Literature
Children sometimes complain that history is boring. They might agree that drawing and painting are fun, but by and large, they feel that learning history about famous painters is dull. To make art and art history a little more fun, author/illustrator Mike Venezia has developed the "Getting to Know the World's Greatest Artists" series. Each book combines facts about the artist's lives and commentary about their work with Venezia's own humorous, comic book-like drawings. The result both engages and informs the reader. This book addresses Vermeer's childhood and career as a painter, as well as several of his famous paintings including A View of Delft, Girl with the Red Hat, The Lace Maker, and The Milk Maid. Readers are sure to enjoy this amusing history book. 2002, Children's Press/Scholastic,
