|Katie - disturbing the sunflowers!|
Alisdair walked down to the library this afternoon to pick up our books and he came home heavy laden with two grocery bags of stories. Some were for Isobel and some were for his school program.
One of the titles in the bags was one I'd mentioned in a previous post "Katie and the Sunflowers" by James Mayhew. Again, Katie, the young girl in the tale, goes to the Museum/Art Gallery with her Grandmother. The story opens with Katie looking at Vincent van Gogh's "Sunflowers" -- only she does more than look. She reached right into the painting and touched the flowers. But then disaster strikes! The vase wobbled and fell right out of the picture, making a big mess all over the floor.

"Katie and the Sunflowers" did not disappoint and lived up to all our expectations, after reading "Katie and the Mona Lisa." Maybe next Tuesday, another Katie tale will arrive to give us yet another art history lesson!
