The Duke and the Peasant by Sister Wendy Beckett

I picked this book up at the library to enjoy with my sons. Granted, much of it slips past my ten month old. My almost-four-year-old and I have been thoroughly enjoying it. Sister Wendy Beckett brings her open eyes to the Duc de Berry's Book of Hours painted by the Limbourg brothers. I am a fan of the art appreciator nun and was saddened when she returned to a life of seclusion. What I love about her style of criticism is that she looks at art...really looks at it. She opens doors by sharing how the power of observation is in all of us.
