It's nice to find a board book that introduces higher culture to very young children. This one presents ten of Vincent Van Gogh's most famous paintings (Sunflowers, Irises, Haystacks in Provence, Olive Grove, The Sower, The Reaper (After Millet), First Steps (After Millet), Women Picking Olives, The Siesta, and The Starry Night) along with simple, rhyming text. This could be a great addition to a toddler's library, but the text is very choppy, bringing the ideas in the paintings together very loosely. It's a good "read-alone" for preverbal toddlers, but is annoying for adults to read aloud. It might have been better to simply introduce the paintings by name and leave it at that.
