Georgia's Greatness (Lauren Baratz-Logsted) - The Sisters Eight are back in a new adventure! This time, Georgia gets her chance to be the hero--if she doesn't completely mess things up!

We discovered Mommy and Daddy disappeared (or died) and that to find out what happened to them, each girl must discover her power and gift. Annie and Durinda both found theirs. We also learned that the girls' nosy neighbor The Wicket is very interested in what Mommy was working on before she disappeared (or died). In this, the third book, the plot thickens: Mrs. McGullicudy, the girls' teacher, is AWOL, and the substitute teacher is too beautiful to be believed (in your narrator's humble opinion.) Does her beautiful facade hide an evil soul? (These are books. Of course it does.) And Georgia makes a blunder that could keep the girls' from ever finding their parents.

Recommended for ages 6-10.

Through Georgia's Eyes (Rachel Victoria Rodriguez) - A gorgeous, evocative biography of one of America’s most beloved artists. Georgia O’Keeffe saw the world differently from most people. As a child she roamed the prairie with a sketch pad in her hand, struggling to capture on paper what she saw all around her. At art school she learned to speak in paint on canvas. But Georgia felt confined by city life. She longed for vast expanses of space, and she found it in the red hills and silent deserts of New Mexico. Lyrical and vivid, this is a portrait of an exceptional artist, a woman whose eyes were open to the wideness and wonder of the world. Through Georgia's Eyes is a 2007 Bank Street - Best Children's Book of the Year. Recommended for ages 7-10.

Georgia O'Keeffe (15 Nov 1887 - 6 Mar 1986) - Georgia O’Keeffe knew from an early age that she wanted to be an artist. Born in Wisconsin at the end of the 19th century, she studied art in both Chicago and New York – however it was not until she met Arthur Dow, her art teacher in South Carolina, that she would find her own unique expression. A friend showed O’Keeffe’s works to a NY gallery owner, Alfred Stieglitz, who quickly saw the brave, vibrant energy of her art (he would also later become Georgia’s husband and fruitful collaborator). Through Stieglitz’s gallery, O’Keeffe developed a respectable following. By the 1920s, Georgia O’Keeffe was producing some of her finest work and establishing herself as an important American modern artist (at a time when women artists had little to no recognition). When one thinks of Georgia O’Keeffe’s painting, one thinks of brilliant, sensual flower still-lifes under a magnifying lens. When her husband died in 1946, O’Keeffe would move permanently to Taos, New Mexico where she filled canvases with its dramatically unique landscapes made more compelling under the artistic eye of O’Keeffe (clouds, cultural objects, animal bones, adobe structures) – which is how she is so strongly associated with the American Southwest. Georgia O’Keeffe still stands out as one of the greatest and most influential modern American artists.
