Vincent Can’t Sleep: Van Gogh Paints the Night Sky
By Barb Rosenstock
Illustrated by Mary GrandPré
Knopf Books for Young Readers
As a boy, Vincent van Gogh often found himself wide awake and wandering under starlit skies. Those nighttime experiences provided the inspiration for many of his paintings, including his most famous, The Starry Night. Though misunderstood in his time, Van Gogh pursued his unique vision, and became one of the most beloved artists of all time.
From the same team behind the Caldecott Honor Book The Noisy Paint Box, Vincent Can’t Sleep is a stunning book that offers insight into the true meaning of creativity and commitment.
Backmatter includes three paintings by Van Gogh, an author’s note, and sources.
