Ella in the Garden of Giverny

By Daniel Fehr
Picture Books

Ella and her family have moved to Paris because her father thinks that every painter should move there. They live in a little village just outside of Paris close to where Claude Monet the famous painter lives. Ella loves to explore in his beautiful garden, drawing and painting all of the wonderful things she sees. She wonders why all he does is stay home and paint water lilies. One day Claude Monet finds her and tells her the story of how he became a famous artist and why he chose to step away from fame in order to fulfill his dreams in life. He encourages Ella to paint as often as possible. This is a great book to teach children not to be afraid of how their art turns out.
