She makes new friends, plants a garden, learns to speak French, and even attends the wedding of Monsieur Monet's daughter
Illustrated with beautiful museum reproductions and charming watercolor collages, "Charlotte in Giverny" includes a French glossary as well as biographical sketches of the featured painters. This delightful journal of a young girl's exciting year will capture readers' imaginations and leave a lasting impression.
