Overview

Georgia's Bones by Jen Bryant


Growing up on a Wisconsin farm, Georgia O'Keeffe began gathering all sorts of objects — sticks and stones, flowers and bones. Although she was teased for her interest in unique shapes and sizes, young Georgia declared: “Someday, I’m going to be an artist” — and that is exactly what she became.

Jen Bryant’s story of Georgia O’Keeffe celebrates the famous artist’s fascination with natural shapes, “common objects,” and her unusual way of looking at the world. Bethanne Andersen’s fluid, graceful illustrations capture the beauty of O’Keeffe’s work and spirit.

I highly recommend 'Georgia's Bones!' It is a great tool for educators and parents interested in broadening their children's minds into the world of art. After living in New Mexico for several years, and exploring Georgia's home in Abiquiu, I thought this book was a wonderful introduction for young readers. Especially, for children who live in a place other than the southwest. The writing and images took me on a journey back to the most enchanting and magical place I've ever lived.
