I painted my world, my life, all the things I loved, all the things I dreamed of, all the things I could not say in words. I painted my beloved Russia, my hometown Vitebsk, the Jewish neighborhood where I grew up, the way I saw everything as a child. During prayers he would daydream; in school he was distracted; and at home he worried about what profession he should choose. But when the young Marc Chagall realized he had artistic talent, he translated his unusual way of looking at the world into color and shape. Chagall grew up, became a painter, and traveled the world, but he never forgot about his hometown of Vitebsk, Belarus, the place that shaped his character and inspired his art. This book, loosely based on Chagalls autobiography, gives readers a glimpse into the early life of one of the twentieth centurys most significant painters. Landmanns charming three-dimensional mixed-media illustrations celebrate the colorful, the whimsical, and the extraordinary aspects of Chagalls life and work.Book Details:Format: HardcoverPublication Date: 1/1/2005Pages: 40Reading Level: Age 8 and Up
We first met the Dweebies on a dreary summer afternoon and the first thing that struck us was how they immediately made us smile. Perhaps it was their vibrant colors. Perhaps it was their quirky personalities. Whatever it was, we knew we wanted to get to know them better. After a little investigation, we learned the following facts: 1. Dweebies have a profession or hobby that they're wildly passionate about. 2. All have names related to that passion (ie, Super Dweebie, Dr. Dweebie, Fix-it Dweebie). 3. Dweebies have no more than three (natural) hairs on top of their heads. As for the game, we found it was incredibly easy to learn and play, but deceptively hard to win. One of the Dweebies let us in on a strategy tip: Don't let any line of cards get too long. Meet the Dweebies. These uniquely colorful characters are out to capture your heart, but you must capture them first. Round up Dweebies by matching cards on both ends of any row.
