Fun Educational Title

Linnea discovers the magic and history of Monet's garden, and your child will too. Good as a readaloud, but I don't think children under 7 will get much out of it. Children who are reading beginner chapter books should be able to tackle it.

Is It Any Good?

Linnea in Monet's Garden would be a great addition to any kid's library. It conveys what's exciting -- to a kid -- about art, history, and travel, and does an amazingly good job of explaining in simple, kid-friendly terms Monet's technique, passion, and place in art history. Given its lengthy text, the book may be best for reading aloud to younger kids. But it's a lively, highly informative read for adults, as well.
