"Jacob's paintings often show important historical events, but he liked to paint scenes of everyday life, too."
This biography introduces Jacob Lawrence in a manner that is fun and interesting to young children. The author’s premise is that if children can think of artists as real people, then the world of art will open up to them.
Through his own illustrations and a clever story line, along with reproductions of the artists’ works, the author conveys a wealth of information about Lawrence, his time, and his art. Great for reading aloud and discussion. Paperback, 32 pages. Ages 4 and up.
