Linnea in Monet’s Garden

Linnea in Monet’s Garden

Linnea has been in Paris. And she has visited the painter Claude Monet’s garden! She even stood on the same little Japanese bridge that Monet painted so often in his pictures. In Paris, Linnea got to see many of the real paintings.

Now she can understand what it means to be called an Impressionist, and she knows a lot about Monet’s life in the pink house where he lived with his eight children.

Twenty-five years after its original publication, this celebration of the wonder of art is available once again in an enlarged keepsake edition. The joy and inspiration Linnea discovers in Monet’s garden will be eagerly embraced by a new generation of readers.

Here she comes, right from the pages of the best selling book! The charming tale of a little girl’s love affair with Impressionist Claude Monet’s paintings is now brought to life in full animation. Join Linnea and her friend Mr. Bloom as they set off to Paris, and then to Monet’s garden in Giverny. Watch with delight as they discover the real places which serve as inspiration for their favorite paintings. And marvel as the paintings and the garden come to “life” in live action.

Linnea in Monet’s Garden is a unique blend of imagination and education, teaching children about the art and life of one of the most important painters of the 20th century, while entertaining them with the mystery and beauty of art and nature.

Our Song

Come hear the blackbirds in the blossoming tree.
Mark their song well, ’cause it sings for you and me.
Try standing still, listen, dear, don’t be coy.
What we hear is the song of our moments of joy.
And this moment will last while the blackbirds sing.
As long as their song lives in us, we take wing.
Wherever I am, I’m not lonely and blue.
Wherever I go, I will be with you.
My heart can be heard, but my eye does not see.
You sing our song under a blossoming tree.
Wherever I am I’m not lonely and blue.
Wherever I go, I will be with you.
My heart can be heard, but my eye does not see.
You sing our song under a blossoming tree.
