    This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book. Rated 4.0 of 5 I definitely have a soft spot in my heart for books targeted to children that promote and encourage the arts. Kid Artists, by David Stabler, is an anthology of sixteen famous artist biographies written for m...

    My daughter raced through all four books in this series so I wanted to give them a try. I enjoyed this one, but as an adult I really wished there were some photographs (of the people and of their art) to go along with the stories. ...

    I love, love, love the Kid Legends series, and this latest addition is no exception. Squinklethoughts 1. Kid Artists is the third installment, preceded by Kid Presidents and Kid Athletes, which are also terrific. I love finding series that are so great that they become auto-buys....

    This was a fun nonfiction book! It's perfect for middle school age, but older readers can enjoy it too. I'm 26 years old and I thought it was a lot of fun and really interesting. The idea behind this book is to share the childhood stories of famous artists. You often hear about their a...

    "Kid Artists" tells the tales of childhood from the artists we know best. What were they like as kids? What happened to them in order for them to become the great artists we know today? The book is divided into 3 parts: It's a hard-knock life, practice makes perfect, and call of the...

    This was a great book to read aloud together with my son (10yrs). The book tells stories from the childhood of many different authors. We both learned quite a lot and more than a few great conversations were had about how different people live, childhood issues and great works of art. ...

    'Kid Artists' by David Stabler with illustrations by Doogie Horner tells the story of many famous artists and events that happened when they were growing up. In some cases, it tells how nature inspired them, like Emily Carr and Georgia O'Keeffe. Sometimes it was a rough life, like b...

    I loved the personal stories and childhood experiences of the artists. My only complaint is that it didn't include pictures of the artists' work. ...

    Brief inspiring stories about a diverse group of artists. Both my seven year old and I enjoyed this book. Just wish it had pictures of works by the artists mentioned. More anecdotal than educational, but still an entertaining introduction to each artist. ...

    Very interesting book! If I were an art teacher 6-9th Grade, I would read a chapter a week or so and teach from that while the students are working on their projects. I learned a lot. What is cool and different about this book, is that it isn't a life sketch of the artist (though I fe...

    I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. This is the first book in David Stabler's series of Kid books I've read (Kid Athletes, etc.) and I found it a good introduction into the life of these artists. I'll admit that more than a few of ...

    I received a prepub of the book through Netgalley. Through short vignettes and adorable cartoons, we learn about different artists, especially about their childhoods and how they became interested in art. I appreciated the diversity of the artists and that they pulled from more traditi...

    Kid Legends Series review? Kid Legends is a multi-author, multi-illustrator series that is a big hit with students. The text and illustration have a casual style that often includes an undertone of sarcasm. Kid Legends is not as far over the edge or a busy as the ?You Wouldn?t W...

    What a great little book! I read it with the kids for school, and it was engaging and understandable for all three of them (ages 7-11). Everyone loved the little comic-style illustrations, and there were several times I caught one of the kids browsing through the book on their own. We ...

    Beautifully written and illustrated. I love the style of writing, explaining to children how these great artists were once children with talents and how they discovered their own ways to share those gifts. Kids ages 9-12 would surely be inspired. I appreciated that there was a bibliogr...

    Kid Artists does a fantastic job of introducing a variety of artists to young readers. Divided into three sections, the artists included are from a variety of backgrounds and styles. I was particularly pleased with the inclusion of Canadian artist Emily Carr, whose home I toured on a v...

    Inspiring, motivating, and a great showcase of artists and their (strange) lives. As an adult artist - and occasionally an art tutor - I found it to be a perfect mix of 'practice makes perfect' and 'make art your way'. Highly recommended for schools, artists, and young artists. ...

    Neat! I was familiar with about half of the artists featured here, but all of their stories were interesting and made me want to learn more. The stories talk about their younger lives and how they got to be artists instead of focusing on their adult years. The little illustrations are ...
