As part of my Reading Challenge this year, I wanted to read Jeanette Winter’s nonfiction picture books. I shared some that I’ve read recently last week here.
The following are reviews of her books I’ve read in the past.
An inspiring account of an artist’s life who didn’t let a serious illness get in the way of creating art that would touch millions of people’s hearts. Jeanette Winter provides a glimpse into Henri Matisse, his incredible paper cutouts, and how everything he did was an extension of his passion!
Based on a true story, this is a great picture book that highlights the importance of education. It’s always mindboggling to see how other countries seem to value education more than we do here. But it’s also been nice to see in real life and online so many dedicated teachers who give their all despite being overworked and underappreciated.
This picture book is about Alia Muhammad Baker, an Iraqi librarian who saved the books in her country during wartime. This shows how important books are, how far people would go to protect them.
This is about Luis Soriano, a man who decided to travel around his country of Colombia by donkey in order to provide books to people who need them. Inspiring!
I’ve just checked out the last batch of her nonfiction picture books so I can’t wait to read them and review them soon!
