The works of surrealist artist Leonora Carrington fascinate many of my students, and this is the only book for children where I have found them. Three other artists are also featured: Mary Cassatt, Betye Saar, and Mary Frank. Other than books on Mary Cassatt, Frida Kahlo, and Georgia O'Keeffe, books on women artists for children are rare. Sills' books are for more mature children (3rd grade and up, I'd say), both for their rich but lengthy "stories about" each artist and for the mature subject matter of the artists represented. Sills' first book of stories about women artists, Inspirations (also in SPL collection), includes the artists Georgia O'Keeffe, Frida Kahlo, Alice Neel, and Faith Ringgold, but is less popular with my students.
