A GIFT FOR EVERYONE

A child wakes up, puts up an easel, picks up a brush and paints--paints a perch, a tree, the warmth of the sun and the sound of the summer breeze, and eventually a bird comes and sings. This is both the most personal and the most universal of books from Caldecott Medal winner Mordicai Gerstin: a fable about art, wonder, and creativity that has a meaning and a message for every reader. Universal appeal and illustration rich in warmth, color and feeling make this jewel of a picture book a lovely choice for the gift-giving season.

Not your standard "How to" book--there are many unexpected turns, some of which perplex, and some of which delight. Some children easily make the imaginative leaps; some put on the skids and ask "is that possible?"--which leads to conversation pondering the "reality" of art and the "magic" of art. Beautifully illustrated, the book ends with this reassurance: (Tomorrow you can paint another one.)
