Barb's People Builders Teaching Help  (Total items found: 6)
    Author: Thomas Locker

Information about this author from Barb's People Builders Teaching Help.
   Thomas Locker began his life in 1937. He has always loved painting and nature, and has used his painting to express his love for nature. He began to exhibit his art work in 1964 at the Banter Gallery in New York City, and since then he has had more than 50 exhibitions internationally. It was 1982 before he began to write and illustrate children's books, and his pictures have added beauty to over 30 of them. In my opinion, a book illustrated by Thomas Locker is an art exhibit in itself. Not only will young readers be exposed to fine art, but they will also be exposed to many of the author's insights on art and the natural world.

3.   Locker, Thomas   Home: A Journey through America   Picture
Publisher: 1998. New Harcourt, Inc Later Printing Paperback This picture book is a splendid mix of art and literature . The magnificent paintings are by Thomas Locker, as is one of the poems, but the other poetry and prose selections are by writers as varied as Robert Frost, Carl Sandburg, John Muir, Pat Mora, Willa Cather, Jane Yolen, Abraham Lincoln, Merle Good, and more. Each literary selection is enhanced by one of Locker's landscape paintings illustrating a scene from the author's home territory. From San Francisco to Walden Pond, we are treated to a small tour of America as seen through Locker's eyes. We see the Pacific Ocean, Yosemite Falls, the southwest desert, the Midwestern prairie, Chicago (in the fog, of course), the Connecticut River in Massachusetts, Comanche country in Texas, a tree-lined street in North Carolina, Spencer County, Illinois, Amish country near Lancaster, Pennsylvania, the Hudson Valley of New York, and Walden Pond.

At the end of the book is a map of the United States showing the locations pictured and written about as each author described his or her hometown. Next to the map is a list of the authors with their year and place of birth. Unpaginated.; ISBN: 0152024522
