Maria Paints the Hills

Gr. 2-6. To frame the narrative paintings of the late folk artist Maria
Hesch, poet Mora has invented a simple story of a child in New Mexico: her
daily life with her working-class mother and her imaginative play. Mora's
plain words are eloquent, but the story does little more than say what the
child sees. It's the pictures that are the focus here. Hesch's folk
narratives have adult as well as child appeal, and the high-quality
reproductions capture the warm interiors of the child's home and the New
Mexican landscape through the seasons. Art classes will want this. Hazel
