This "In Art" book is dedicated to the men in my life who have spent decades of their lives in service to their country through the military: my father-in-law, Daniel Jaime, Sr., my father, John McGrew, and my husband, Daniel Jaime. Between them they saw service in the Korean War, the Vietnam War, and Desert Storm.

This book is arranged chronologically, according to major conflicts that U.S. Soldiers have seen action in - from the French and Indian War when American soldiers fought alongside British soldiers, through to 2010 when American soldiers helped with relief efforts after the earthquake in Haiti.

Note to parents/teachers: The books in this serious generally consist of family-friendly, "rated G" paintings. Because of the topic of this particular book, I would say this one is more of a "PG" rating.

About the Author

Catherine's appreciation for "Great Art" started slowly. Beginning with a love of all things Leonardo da Vinci, in recent years she branched out to Claude Monet, Winslow Homer, and Norman Rockwell. And there her love of art sat for many years. Only in the last few years has she come to recognize and enjoy the works of many other artists, and in the process has fallen in love with many of their paintings, both well-known and not so well-known.

This series started simply: a few books to introduce children to art and artists they might not have known - all arranged along a single theme (first hats, then with animals, then bridges, and so it went). Before long she had multiplied her efforts and her books, all the while introducing not just her students, but also many adults to the vast array of artwork that so many of us sadly neglect.
