Entries in Monet's garden (1)

Linnea in Monet's Garden

I'm always on the lookout for children's books and videos that teach as well as tell a good tale. Last year was Linnea in Monet's Garden twenty-fifth anniversary, and I think this classic more than meets the requirements. This well-loved Swedish story centers around the adventures of Linnea and Mr. Bloom as they pay a mythical visit to Monet's Giverny, through the gardens into his home. (The dining room shown in the trailer below is fantastic.) 

Author Christina Bjork's book (published in 1985 by Sweden's Rabe & Sjogren), was again released in October, 2012 in an English version for U.S. markets to help celebrate its anniversary.  

 

DVD

And, Linnea in Monet's Garden is available on DVD, so that children can better see Monet's work both in his gardens and on canvas.  I plan on getting both as a Christmas gift for my grandchildren!

 Shhhhhhhh...

 

Watch this trailer to see if this choice is appropriate for your child.
