Everybody Paints!: The Lives and Art of the Wyeth Family

Everybody Paints!: The Lives and Art of the Wyeth Family
Rubin, Susan Goldman

It's rare to become a world famous artist whose paintings are found in some of the most renowned museums in the world. And even more so for three painters in the same family to achieve that feat. But that's the case with the Wyeths--N.C., Andrew, and Jamie--three generations of painters, and arguably the "first family" of American art. This volume traces the events that shaped the Wyeths' art, as well as how each generation influenced the other.

The Way I Feel

The Way I Feel
Cain, Janan

Illustrations and rhyming text portray children experiencing a range of emotions, including frustration, shyness, jealousy, and pride. Feelings are neither good nor bad, they simply are. Kids need words to name their feelings, just as they need words to name foood, clothes, toys, people, etc. Strong, colorful, and expressive images go along with the verses to help children connect the word and the emotion. -- From book jacket.
