Join Linnea and her friend Mr. Bloom as they set off to Paris, and then to Monet’s garden in Giverny. Watch with delight as they discover the real places which served as inspiration for their favorite paintings. And marvel as the paintings and the garden come to “life” in live action. Linnea in Monet’s Garden is a unique blend of imagination and education, teaching children about the art and life of one of the most important painters of the 20th century, while entertaining them with the mystery and beauty of art and nature. – Written by Anonymous
