Movie Reviews

My all time favorite video!!!!

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I am an elementary art teacher & use this video while teaching Claude Monet. I never tire of watching it, & neither do the kids. I use it in my third grade curriculum, but kids in grades 4-6 request to see it again & again! I also use the book of the same name which is nearly identical to the video. It is 30 minutes long, just right for young attention spans, and allows time at the end of class to make lily pads & flowers "from Monet's Garden"! My favorite lesson. :o)"
Used for 3rd graders

"I use this video in an "Arts Alive" presentation I do for third graders. I have used it for 3 years and it is VERY well received by the classes. It really brings Monet's paintings alive and shows them that art still lives. It is a combo of cartoon story, still photos of Monet's works and live-action video of his home in Giverny. A perfect choice for any school arts program of a great video for kids of any age."
Just like the book.

"The book Linnea in Monet's Garden has been a favorite in our house for years, and when I found the DVD some time ago I bought it right away. Since then it has been played over and over again. By myself, but mostly by my six years old daughter. We have been to Monet's garden in Giverny, and watching the video brings back such good memories.The vidoe is so creatively made, with the story of the small girl Linnea and her old friend and neighbour Mr. Bloom. They are both lovers of flowers and of painters, and Monet is one of their favorites. They both dream about going from Sweden where they live, to Giverny and Monet's garden outside Paris. And wonder over all wonders, one day their dream comes true. They travel together to Paris and to Giverny, and we are invited to go with them.The story is told in a charming way, with alot of illustrations from their trip and we also get to know several of Monet's paintings. Both children and adults will learn alot about Monet and his life, and about the impressionist period in art.Britt Arnhild Lindland"
Very appealing for little people

"My 3 yo loves this movie and asks for it daily as "Mr. Bloom". It's a very peaceful movie, with nice human to human discussion about painting and Monet's life. My younger daughter isn't very interested in painting or viewing art, so the appeal for her likely goes beyond the obvious subject. Thoughts I have on why (she hasn't told me why she loves it so), are because of the simple animation, and IME, young children love interacting with older people. This movie is a very nice conversation between two people who clearly respect each other. Maybe children don't see enough of that in our age-segregated society.There some nice shots of a couple of Monet's paintings, but my daughter hasn't swung into painting in the Impressionist style as a result of viewing this. :-)"
