    1. Kid Artists introduces readers to a number of famous artists as children, telling compelling stories about how they practiced their art or where they learned to love it. A variety of artists from different background and styles ensures there's an artist who will appeal to everyone.Interestingly, the book does seem to assume some knowledge of the artists in question, even though it's quite likely this could be many young readers' first introduction to a few of the figures.  Some of the mini bio [...]


    2. 'Kid Artists' by David Stabler with illustrations by Doogie Horner tells the story of many famous artists and events that happened when they were growing up.In some cases, it tells how nature inspired them, like Emily Carr and Georgia O'Keeffe. Sometimes it was a rough life, like being shy like Charles Schulz, or a family losing it's fortune, like Yoko Ono. There are also stories about Pablo Picasso, Frida Kahlo and others.The stories include illustrations which are mostly humorous. These don't [...]


    3. This book is part of a series about famous people as kids and this work is the best one so far. There's not as many individuals in this book as there is in the others, but the bios go into much more detail here. The artists selected are from various backgrounds and a wide range of time periods. There's also a pretty good bibliography for more reading listed at the end. Adorable illustrations too! Best for middle grades.Net Galley Feedback


    4. Inspiring, motivating, and a great showcase of artists and their (strange) lives. As an adult artist - and occasionally an art tutor - I found it to be a perfect mix of 'practice makes perfect' and 'make art your way'. Highly recommended for schools, artists, and young artists.


    5. I love, love, love the Kid Legends series, and this latest addition is no exception.Squinklethoughts1. Kid Artists is the third installment, preceded by Kid Presidents and Kid Athletes, which are also terrific. I love finding series that are so great that they become auto-buys. I have no doubt I’ll be reading (and buying for our library) the next title in this collection, whatever it might be about.2. You’ll enjoy finding out what the childhoods of some very famous people were like. Well-kno [...]


    6. "Kid Artists" tells the tales of childhood from the artists we know best. What were they like as kids? What happened to them in order for them to become the great artists we know today?The book is divided into 3 parts: It's a hard-knock life, practice makes perfect, and call of the wild.The first section focuses on artists who grew up poor or experienced severe hardships from war to death. Yoko Ono was fascinating. She started off as pretty much royalty and then through World War II became desti [...]


    7. Very interesting book! If I were an art teacher 6-9th Grade, I would read a chapter a week or so and teach from that while the students are working on their projects. I learned a lot.What is cool and different about this book, is that it isn't a life sketch of the artist (though I feel like it covers a lot of the artist life) it focuses on their childhood. The opening line of the book is " Not every kid grows up to be a great artist . But every great artists definitely starts out as a kid"I enjo [...]


    8. This was a great book to read aloud together with my son (10yrs). The book tells stories from the childhood of many different authors. We both learned quite a lot and more than a few great conversations were had about how different people live, childhood issues and great works of art. We also had a good time looking up the art of each artist.


    9. Good reading for young capitalists who like artIt was good and funny 😃😃😃 😎 😎 😎 😎 😎 😎 😎 😎 😎 😎 😎 😎😎 😎 😎




    10. I thought it was an interesting introduction to a variety of artists. I think this would be a great book to include when learning about the artists in this book.





    11. I loved the personal stories and childhood experiences of the artists. My only complaint is that it didn't include pictures of the artists' work.


    12. I received a prepub of the book through Netgalley. Through short vignettes and adorable cartoons, we learn about different artists, especially about their childhoods and how they became interested in art. I appreciated the diversity of the artists and that they pulled from more traditional art forms as well as nontraditional like comics. I think this will be a good introduction to art and each artist and will hopefully encourage children to read more about art and create their own!


    13. This review originally published in Looking For a Good Book. Rated 4.0 of 5I definitely have a soft spot in my heart for books targeted to children that promote and encourage the arts. Kid Artists, by David Stabler, is an anthology of sixteen famous artist biographies written for middle grade (and younger) readers.While it is unlikely that students will know all these artists (some won't know any of the artists), hopefully some students who find this interesting will look into the artists a litt [...]

Philadelphia, PA: Quirk Books.Citation by: Amy ReesorType of Reference: Biography Call Number: Ref 709.22 StaContent/Scope: A collective biography targeting students in grades 3-6. The biography tells the stories of the childhood of 16 famous artists and the hardships overcome in order to accomplish their level of success. Mentor relationships and other positive influences are discussed in detail. The playful cartoon [...]


    15. This was a fun nonfiction book! It's perfect for middle school age, but older readers can enjoy it too. I'm 26 years old and I thought it was a lot of fun and really interesting. The idea behind this book is to share the childhood stories of famous artists. You often hear about their adulthood, when they really started to get famous, but it's interesting to learn where these people came from! I know I'm curious about "origin stories" when I really admire someone.The book is broken up into three [...]


    16. I received a free copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.This is the first book in David Stabler's series of Kid books I've read (Kid Athletes, etc.) and I found it a good introduction into the life of these artists.I'll admit that more than a few of these names, while familiar to me in the general sense of the word, were unfamiliar to me in terms of what they were really known for as artists. That made certain chapters a bit more difficult to enjoy, as they don't real [...]


    17. Full ReviewKid Artist: True Tales of Childhood from Creative Legends by David Stabler is a fun nonfiction book! It's perfect for middle school age, but can be enjoyable to older readers. The book shares childhood stories of famous artists. The book is divided into three sections and within each section the artists have similarities. I loved the illustrations by Doogie Horner, it really brought the stories to life. I knew about most of the featured artists, but I was not aware of all. I enjoyed l [...]


    18. Kid Artists does a fantastic job of introducing a variety of artists to young readers. Divided into three sections, the artists included are from a variety of backgrounds and styles. I was particularly pleased with the inclusion of Canadian artist Emily Carr, whose home I toured on a visit to Victoria, B.C.Each artist's mini-biography starts in childhood and continues on to show the effects of their early circumstances and experiences on their adult lives and artistic careers. Written in a very [...]


    19. This is a fun book. I received it as a Giveaway here on . It is a book of fun stories about famous artists. Most of the artists I knew from my studies and research, however there were a few I did not know. When I was unfamiliar with a certain artist's body of work, I would look them up on the Internet and spend time studying the artwork or that of their mentors. The Illustrations are very whimsical and my eight year old son was drawn to the book on a number of occasions because of them. They def [...]


    20. I read this book in one sitting. I learned so much about these famous artists then I ever thought I would. What I enjoyed the most about this book is that while the stories were short they packed a bunch of information in each one but in an enjoyable way. Unlike some books where you are reading them and it is like reading a history book in school. The illustrations in this book were great too. Although, not really needed they did help bring the stories more to life. After reading this book I hav [...]


    21. In the same style as Kid Presidents and Kid Athletes and coupled with the illustrations of Doogie Horner, David Stabler introduces us to childhood stories from sixteen well known artists around the world. From Beatrix Potter's love of collecting and drawing animals to Ted "Dr. Seuss" Geisel's problems with bullies to Pablo Picasso’s troubles with breaking the rules at school and at home, kids will relate to these famous artists and realize that everyone was a kid once, and if they have a creat [...]


    22. A great introduction to some key figures in the art world, I did feel as though Kid Artists assumed the reader knew a lot more about art than they may already. I have to admit that I'd never heard of a couple of the artists highlighted, and found myself have to leave the book to go and find out more about who they actually were.Some light biographies for each artist would have been really useful, as would have some examples of their work - it was a bit too anecdotal to be educational for my liki [...]


    23. Every artist was a kid once, trying to get supplies, writing on walls, being over shadowed by older siblings. Kid artists have all the same problems as everyone else does growing up. They are no luckier or smarter than anyone else. Perhaps it’s their determination that makes them famous or just resilience. This is a fun addition to the Kid books and hopefully will encourage young readers to dig deeper into the lives of artists.


    24. Unique format explores facts about artists lives as children and how events shaped their career choice and artistic style. Cartoony illustrations do not attempt to depict actual artists. Hardly any examples of famous works in the book. Would have benefitted readers to show actual photos of representative work, perhaps in an appendix. Text is approachable and viewpoint makes art a realistic and tangible future for young readers. Format will connect with middle graders.


    25. You know who the greats are but do you know how they got started? This was an enjoyable children's book even for me as an adult. Each chapter dives into the childhood of an artist, and not just the artists represented on the cover. "Kid Artists" is art history with guided illustration.
