A dab of blue here, a splash of red there, a goopy smear of green . . . everywhere. To the tune of "It Ain't Gonna Rain No More," one creative kid floods his world with color, painting first the walls, then the ceiling, then HIMSELF! Before this feisty artist is through, he'll have painted his head, back, hands, legs, feet, and . . . Oh no--here comes Mama!

Karen Beaumont's zippy text and David Catrow's zany illustrations turn an infamous childhood activity into raucous storytime fun, giving a silly twist to the fine art of self-expression.

A fun read-aloud best told by singing!

This book is a storytime staple.
I handed out paintbrushes to the kids today and we painted our faces and bodies in imitation of the main character (using our imaginations).
Great book for - TALKING about body parts, PREDICTING rhyming words, SINGING a book rather than reading it.

In the rhythm of a familiar folk song, a child cannot resist adding one more dab of paint in surprising places. Themes – Painting, Bodies

Combines infectious melodies with concept-building, focusing on body parts. Each page sets us up with a rhyme then pauses to let the reader guess the painted part in question. "So I take some red and I paint my...HEAD!"

An ornery kiddo cannot resist adding one more dab of paint all over his body. This is one of my all-time favorite read-aloud books. Pair this book with a finger painting sesh and you're golden. (Or purple, or blue, or...)

What a fun story! A little kid steadily paints all over himself. A great idea is to read it with a paintbrush so your little one can pretend to "paint" on herself along with the book.

Wonderful story time book. It's a simple story with a FANTASTIC rhythm.

It also offers the opportunity for children to chime in with various body parts as they get painted - helping the storyteller complete the rhyme.

Another of my story time favorites!
