"As a child, shapes often drifted
in and out of Georgiabs mind.
Curved and straight,
round or square,
she studied them,
and let them disappear."

Growing up on a Wisconsin farm, Georgia began gathering all sorts of objects -- sticks and stones, flowers and bones. Although she was teased for her interest in unique shapes and sizes, young Georgia declared: bSomeday, Ibm going to be an artistb -- and that is exactly what she became.

Jen Bryantbs story of Georgia ObKeeffe celebrates the famous artistbs fascination with natural shapes, bcommon objects, b and her unusual way of looking at the world. Bethanne Andersenbs fluid, graceful illustrations capture the beauty of ObKeeffebs work and spirit.

This book was AWESOME! I read it in school the other day and I thought this book was going to be boring until we read it. Whoever didn't read this book needs to. I didn't even believe my teacher when she said this book was real. But now I believe it. Once again this book was AWESOME!! Read it! Oh and one more thing you should also read a book called Thank You Mr. Falker. That's an great book to. I feel bad for the girl in the book. That book is also real / Non- Fiction
