These books have been displayed on the top of the “work” shelf for the past month or so. I briefly introduced them and we read them once or twice before Ronan lost interest. But, I left them out on the shelf, mostly due to a lack of knowing what else to do with them.
Last week, we were in Michael’s searching for some craft supplies and we walked past the pre-printed pictures. Ronan stopped me and shouted, “Hey, it’s like the book.” After some discussion, I realized he was pointing to a print of Starry Night.
Hmm. So, you just need to expose them to the art…and they will notice.
Update 3/2015: I just discovered that the web site, artsy.net, has a complete biographical page on Vincent van Gogh, which includes many of his other paintings. And, as a librarian, I can tell you that I applied evaluation criteria to their web site and it checks out!
Have a great weekend!
