These artists’ biographies beautifully blend story, art history, and art appreciation. Read more about them in my latest article at Story Warren!

    Thanks, Katie! I forwarded your review to a few people. I missed these books somehow when I was schooling David. We did study some artists: Audubon, Remington, Cassatt, and Rockwell.

    These books look great! I would have loved those as a kid.

    I have a 4yo interested in reading but he doesn’t like fiction. Do you have any non-fiction advice for early readers?

      Hi Aletta!

      The Ready-to-Read, Step into Reading, and I Can Read! series all include history stories that might spark his interest (just search for those terms on Amazon). Soon after my daughter learned to read, I would find her on our living room floor with a stack of these! The tricky part will be finding something that’s the right level but still interests him. The earliest level books, even in these series, focus a lot on fiction.

      For books that he won’t be able to tackle for a while, but which might keep his attention as read-alouds, try level 1 of the Let’s-Read-and-Find-Out-Science series, or the If You Were a Kid During the. . . series.

      Hope this helps!
