Book Review #1349 The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse by Eric Carle




Book Review #1349
The Artist Who Painted a Blue Horse by Eric Carle
Rating: two stars (out of four)

While I liked the sentiment of this book and the illustrations were colorful and bright, I wasn't blown away by the premise. Carle's message good: you should be able to creatively express yourself and not necessarily listen to or follow other people's expectations. But I wasn't sure if this book had adequately gotten that point across. It seemed a little simplistic - the author’s note at the back was good, but I felt like the story needed a little bit more development for me to fully embrace it.
