COLORFUL DREAMER: The Story of Artist Henri Matisse
"Parker’s lyrical text is accessible to young children, and offers a rich look at the
artist’s life... A great introduction to the renowned artist and a validation of dreamers everywhere."
–BOOKLIST, Starred review
"A must for art teachers, and a nice addition to history and biography collections."
–SLJ, Starred review
"Matisse’s genius was that he never stopped exploring even as he honored his intense childhood dreams of creativity, color and art.
Parker’s text is a pitch-perfect and appealing narrative, but the real star here is Berry’s art. ... This inspiring and accessible picture book serves as a brilliant introduction to one artist’s vitality. The message? Like Matisse we must never stop creating and experimenting."
