    One thought on “Emma (Dell Picture Yearling)

    1. Lisa Vegan

      This picture book story, about an old woman whose family gives her a gift painting that spurs her on to become a painter herself is charming and sweet. The illustrations are vivid and really make the book come alive, and the story is particularly good for young kids that might be a little shy around the elderly or have a difficult time empathizing with them. It’s also enjoyable for adults to read.

    2. Kristin Lee

      A good book that explains the joys one might find when they learn a new craft. In Emma's case, she is a lonely woman and finds happiness when she begins to paint pictures of the village she grew up in.

    3. Mary Ann

      Just loved the message of this book - how Emma discovered (at the age of 72) how much she loved to paint, and once she started to paint her favorite things, she was always surrounded by her friends and the places she loved.

    4. Shannon

      This is a dear little book. This book was recommended at the end of the "Reading Rainbow" episode featuring "Liang's Magic Paintbrush." Having only her cat, Pumkinseed, as a companion, Emma is a bit lonely. On her 72nd birthday her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren give her a painting of the little village where she grew up. Emma likes the painting but feels it doesn't do justice to her village. She buys art supplies and paints the scene herself. Now her picture hangs where the ot [...]

      This book was about a little old woman who became very lonely. Although she had a cat and a family that would visit every so often she still felt lonely inside. One day she found something she loved doing, painting. She would constantly paint all day every day because it made her feel happy. I liked this book because it makes the reader inspired to find something they enjoy doing as a hobby.

    6. Kelly Powell

      This book was a touching story that reminded me of my own grandmother that is ninety-two. Being lonely is something a lot of people struggle with so you must find hobbies and things to fill your time so that you enjoy life with others and by yourself. I also loved how the illustrator drew each picture with a boarder not filling the entire page.

    7. babyhippoface

      What a beautiful story. I am pretty sure that Emma and Caroline Cooney's other favorite literary heroine, Miss Rumphius, could be best friends. Makes me wish I was a painter.

    8. Janet

      A nice tribute book to a lonely older woman who begins to paint to fill her lonely spots. The illustrations by Cooney are lovely, but the theme is not in style for the 21st century child.

    9. Bree

      Notes:barbara cooney illustrations are perfectstory of old woman who becomes a painter to satisfy her lonelinesskids liked emma in the treemore a book for girls than boys in my opinion

    10. The Brothers

      A hopeful story of an old grandmother who finds a way to change her lonely life through painting. Cute but unoriginal.The illustrations are pretty good.

    11. Katie Lewellen

      This book was a wonderful book to have students identify emotions and feelings. The overall book can help to teach a lesson about how to make the best of situations placed in.

    12. Pita-eater

      From inside the book: "Motivated by a birthday gift, a 72-year-old woman begins to paint." This is such a gentle, comforting story, and Cooney's illustrations are exquisite (as always).
