Georgia in Hawaii review Ý 3 ☆ Georgia O’Keeffe’s Hawaiian tour celebrates natural beauty and powerful artistic convictions Georgia O’Keeffe was famous for painting exactly what she wanted whether flowers or skulls Who would ever dare to tell her what to paint The Hawaiian Pineapple Company tried Luckily for them Georgia fell in love with HawaiiY tried Luckily for them Georgia fell in love with Hawaii There she painted the beloved green islands vibrant flowers feathered fishhooks and the blue blue sea But did she paint what the pineapple company wanted most of all Amy Novesky’s lyrical telling of this l. I picked up this book because the pictures are beautiful The story was ok but I was mostly attending to the language ie adjectives the author used to describe each Hawaiian local flower Because many children as well as adults don't know what flowers are grown in Hawaii and even what Hawaii looks like those detailed descriptions would help them visualize and learn how adjectives can shape and articulate what you are trying to explain to people This could be also a good culturally responsive instruction discussing all kinds of plants in different cultures in addition to Hawaii perhaps connecting it to a plant unit in science too I could also integrate this into ArtELA by having students drawpaint whatever they like as Georgia did in the story and describe their drawingspaintings using adjectives

Amy Novesky ç 3 summary

Ittle known story and Yuyi Morales’s gorgeous paintings perfectly capture Georgia’s strong artistic spirit The book includes an author’s note illustrator’s note bibliography map of the islands and endpapers that identify Georgia’s favorite Hawaiian flower. Georgia in Hawaii When Georgia O'Keeffe Painted What she Pleased by Amy Novesky and illustrated by Yuyi Morales is about a young woman that journeyed across the Ocean to Hawaii to paint Georgia O'Keeffe arrived in Hawaii after five days on the Ocean When she arrived she was greeted by native Hawaiian customs While in Oahu she visited the pineapple fields and wanted to live nearby to paint but the company refused her reuest Georgia was disgusted and refused to let anyone tell her what to paint Despite the trouble Georgia started her journey; she went where she wanted when she wanted and she painted She painted waterfalls the blue sea and hardened lava Next Georgia visited the big island of Hawaii and she painted Finally she visited the last island and was starting to look like an island girl But too soon Georgia's Hawaiian tour was over it was time to return home The Hawaiian Company was not happy that Georgia returned without painting a pineapple but Georgia was not going to be told what to do Georgia then thought about all Hawaii had given her and painted the company a perfect Hawaiian pineapple This book would be great for children in grades 1st through 3rd grade for read aloud while talking about cultural diversity I could integrate this into a lesson plan talking about the diversity of the United States The story is culturally diverse and is accurate in content vocabulary and illustrations The story encompassed Hawaiian culture throughout the different islands and did not generalize the Hawaiian culture On the island of Oahu Georgia meets pineapple workers and local mountain villagers on the big island she meets cattle ranchers or Hawaiian cowboys and finally in Kauai Georgia meets local artists and a former ueen Each island is represented accurately and relevant to the culture in Hawaii Culture diversity is important for children to understand and have examples of throughout stories that they wouldn't be exposed to otherwise The book also encompasses Hawaiian vocabulary such as Aloha and paniolo Finally the books illustrations are beautiful and illustrate the Hawaiian culture The color is bright and demonstrates the natural beauty of Hawaii The space emphasizes the underlying beauty of Hawaii and the theme that is the beauty in sharing and experience The students will be able to learn and engage in the story through rich cultural diversity I visited Hawaii over Christmas Break with my husband for out honeymoon and love it This picture storybook took me back to Hawaii with the vivid illustrations and culturally relevant vocabulary and content At the beginning of the book there is a section that shows different Hawaiian flowers and I loved that
