Vincent Paints His House written and illustrated by Tedd Arnold (2015)
When Vincent decides to paint his house he takes out all his paints. But he can’t decide which color to use. At first he thinks he might want to paint it white, but is stopped by a spider who wants to paint the house red. Vincent thinks about all the different shades of red and thinks red is nice too. But the caterpillar wants him to paint it yellow, and the snake wants him to paint it green, and on it goes throughout the spectrum of the rainbow each animal wants the house a different color. Finally Vincent decides to use all of his paints and paints his house the way he wants it!
Not a biography, but certainly a good chance to introduce young readers to Vincent Van Gogh and all the beautiful colors artists use.
