During a museum visit, Katie climbs into Van Gogh’s painting The Starry Night and takes a star to show Grandma, who is napping nearby. When the other stars trail her through the gallery, she borrows a chair, a ladder, and a fishing net from other Van Gogh paintings to help her replace the stars. The story may be slight, but the vivid illustrations take readers into six Van Gogh masterpieces for a closer look, while the back page comments on each one. Useful for preschool and primary-grade units, this picture book from the Katie series offers a playful introduction to the artist’s work. Preschool-Grade 2. --Carolyn Phelan
