  • Effective And engaging, at least, I imagine, to the target audience and to parents and teachers Would kids who aren t feeling the impact of divorce enjoy it I dunno But I do know I want to read by the author.


  • Cathleen Daly just kind of knocks me over Her book Prudence wants a Pet is a I want a pet book done that much differently that it feels unique even though the story premise seems to have been told over and over Here is a picture book that touches on the emotions and confusion of a family separated by divorce Such a common lived experience for so many children the unanswered questions, the frustration, the living between two homes yet captured in a picture book Not so often More often these theme [...]

  • For older picture book readers, with lots of words and complicated sentence structures.Emily s favorite artist, Picasso, painted nothing but blue when he felt sad When her parents separate and her dad moves into a new apartment, Emily enters a blue period of her own Strong storyline with real emotions, and the artwork suits the story perfectly The emotional reactions of all four family members Mom, Dad, Emily, and her little brother Jack are given equal weight.An excellent conversation tool.


  • The author does a terrific job telling an important story about a young girl dealing with her parents breakup She finds a way to express herself through her art Lots of my students really enjoy art class and I think they would be able to relate to this book.


  • Emily s Blue Period, written by Cathleen Daly, is a story about a young girl, Emily In the story Emily goes through a time in her life when her parents separate The blue period is symbolism of sadness Emily wants to be an artist She likes to compare her work to the famous Pablo Picasso This is how she determined that she was in her blue period The separation of parents is a hard topic for kids to go through I know from personal experience separation is hard to go through at a young age, or any a [...]


  • I thought the story was very moving I liked the pencil, watercolor, and digital collage illustrations, but they are not my favorite style of illustration For one thing, I am NOT a Picasso fan But I very much liked Emily s heart collage I did think the illustration style fit the story well and the illustrator, Lisa Brown, was generous with the use of blue in the chapter Blue One thing I found interesting the family cat appears in many of the home illustrations, but not in Emily s heart collage I [...]


  • Love how author Cathleen Daly uses Picasso s art style to write about divorce separation It is a clever approach that makes a serious topic understandable for the reader I love the information about Picasso that is woven into the story without it being forced A much needed book to help kids cope with divorce separation.Interesting note This picture book is 56 pages long and divided into five chapters.


  • Are there ever times that you feel the world around you is getting just too mixed up Whether it s countries at war or friends not speaking with one another, there are times that the world seems turned upside down Emily s Blue Period, a favorite new picture book, captures one child s reaction to such a moment and how art helped her find her way through.See full review at Great Kid Books


  • This was such a cute book It does a great job of providing little bits of information about Picasso while also dealing with the emotional struggles of growing up with divorced parents The art is cute and the language is accessible for many levels I was surprised by the complexity of this book and how artfully it handled sensitive material A great addition to any library.


  • A solid middle grade picture book The story covers a lot of bases and could be used in the context of several themes adjusting to parents divorce, using an established artist author as a mentor, working toward an aspiration or goal A great read aloud for art teachers to get reading into their class.


  • A young art loving girl with a particular affection for Pablo Picasso s unique way of portraying the world through cubism uses art to help her cope with the stress of her parents separating A sophisticated, empowering story.

  • Originally when I encountered the title of this picture book I assumed it would be all about art Yes, Emily, is required to do art a collage of her home, but Emily is struggling with what is her home as parents are divorced Actually the use of various pieces to make a whole, the idea of collage is very appropriate to this situation I do however, criticize loudly that there is a bias in the illustrations which attempt to show the father as the parent less responsible and the one pulling away from [...]


  • I m always a fan of Lisa Brown s illustrations, so combine those with both great lessons in art and identifying emotions and I m sold Daly carefully explores a range of possible feelings that kiddos might experience as their parents separate while also providing a great connection to Picasso s expression of emotion through his art Both my kindergarten son and I were captivated.


  • I actually liked this book than anticipated It is educational AND handles a difficult situation beautifully The ending is sweet and the illustrations are nice I especially liked the black cat.
