This book helps teachers understand how to build a quality reading rich curriculum that supports the needs of all the children in their classroom.

Over half of all the visual artists working today are women, but the paintings and sculptures shown in many galleries and musuems tell a different story because they're usually the work of men. In this book Kate Pankhurst, descendent of Emmeline Pankhurst, tells the fascinating stories of some of history's most talented female artists and shows how their creations transformed the art world. Meet Elisabeth Le Brun, who painted people smiling (which was very unusual at the time). Uncover the untold story of Emily Kame Kngwarreye, the Aboriginal elder whose paintings expressed the history of her people. And then there's Peggy Guggenheim, the art collector who helped bring many talented artists into the spotlight. Frida Kahlo found the greatest muse for her art was indeed herself -- painting became a way to express her feelings and find her identity. Including comic strips, family trees, maps and more, Fantastically Great Women Artists and their Stories is a celebration of just some of the women whose creativity and dreams has made a mark on the world. Women featured: Amrita Sher-Gil, Elisabeth Le Brun, Emily Kame Kngwarreye, Faith Ringgold, Frida Kahlo, Kathe Kollwitz, Dame Laura Knight and Peggy Guggenheim.
