Charlotte in New York
By Jean MacPhail Knight
Publisher Chronicle Books

Charlotte, the fictional daughter of an American painter, tells the story of her life in France, and of a family trip to New York, in her journal. Her father is one of many Americans who have come to France to learn about Impressionism. Charlotte's journal entries are illustrated with paintings from the period, the late 19th and early 20th Centuries. Charlotte shares her impressions of the sights she sees such as the Statute of Liberty and of the various painters that are part of her father's world.

Charlotte in New York offers children a substantial dose of art history in an attractive format. A number of activities can be pulled from the text, although they are not written up that way. Information about the paintings used is found at the back of the book along with biographical sketches of the artists mentioned in the book.
