Another delightful addition to author Sima Levy's Meet the Artist series, A Day with Degas introduces children to the impressionist painter's unique techniques-while teaching young readers a few important life lessons in a fun way.
Follow young Paris as she struggles to finish her Degas-like painting of ballerinas and winds up on a wackadoey adventure to France, where she learns the secret behind the famous artist's just-right creations. But can Paris possibly achieve similar results, simply by practicing his methods? Find out in this imaginative rhyming tale that celebrates the artist in each of us.
The book offers a great way to introduce kids to art history, while also sparking their own creativity. Also included is an activity and sing-along song at the website http://www.mothersartworld.com.
Don't miss A Day with Degas!

About the Author
Born in Tel Aviv, Israel, author Sima Levy moved to New York with her family at the age of eight. Later that same year, her eighteen-year-old brother died of a brain tumor, a tragedy that first stirred a desire in her to give back to the world. Now a wife and mother, Levy hopes her Meet the Artist series is making that childhood dream a reality.
Levy teaches an art program at Schechter Day School, and also has the pleasure of sharing art with children at Cohen Children's Medical Center. When she's not serving the community, she likes to spend time with her family and dream up the next artist adventure for Ms. Simone, Paris, and the gang.
