David's Drawings

By Booklist

The cut-paper-and-fabric collages are a good choice for the story. Their dimension brings alive the multiethnic classroom of smiling, engaging kids. Each spread shows the picture David has drawn, and children will enjoy watching the work grow more intricate as things are added. Both theme and execution make this a fine choice for classroom read-alouds: listeners may want to talk about the story’s themes and make their own class picture.
