Reviews - What do customers think about A Magical Day with Matisse (Mini Masters)?
lovely book Jul 28, 2007
I love these series of books. My daughter instantly loved this book and she's only 15 mos. old. I started reading "In the garden with Van Gogh" when she was 6 mos. old. She loves them both now. The rhymes are very cute as well.
Nudity? Jul 12, 2006
It's nothing your kid hasn't seen before. My niece, she's thrilled there are other people who run around nakie, just like she (and most toddlers) prefers to do.
Nudity Not Appropriate for My Infant Son Jun 2, 2006
I love all 5 of the books in this series, but I just returned this one with the Matisse artwork.
I just felt that pictures of a bunch of BUCK NAKED PEOPLE sitting around playing instruments and a group of BUCK NAKED PEOPLE dancing around in a circle just weren't appropriate for my infant son's collection of books right now (well, maybe EVER). I wish someone had told me BEFORE I had purchased it . . . it's more than just 'bobbing sailboats' and 'tickled toes' . . .
Very Cute Mar 21, 2006
Just the thing if you want to spend some time reading something that is both cute and educational!
Incredible Introduction to Art Mar 16, 2006
My daughter is 17 months old and loves this series of books. The artwork is representative of the original work and the words do a great job of telling a story for each picture in a descriptive way without "squashing creativity" for the reader.
One minor concern, if you have any objection to nudity, there are pictures of representational nudes in the Matisse book that are indicative of his work. My husband and I discussed it and introduced it to our daughter who didn't seem to care at all. She just loved the "people dancing."
