Impressionist Sticker Book -- oh so great!

The Impressionists Sticker Book by Usborne is a must-have for student studying Impressionist art and artists. We started using ours today, and both the boys enjoyed them.  We are currently reading the information on pages pertaining to the movement as a whole, but when we study each artist more in-depth, we will place the appropriate stickers.

First, we read The Impressionists (Usborne Young Reading: Series Three) which is simply a fabulous introduction to the time period, the art movement and those who made it happen.  The following artists are introduced within the context of a wonderfully-woven story: Pissarro, Cassatt, Degas, Morisot, Monet, Renoir and Sisley.

The sticker book provides an interactive and visually appealing response to the book.

There are coordinating Impressionist Paintings Activity Cards which will be released in June 2012.  I previewed them on the Usborne website, and they look like a great product.  Each card contains a painting with discussion questions about the art work.  You can see samples here.
