She had many permanent works of art that were hung on the fridge and the walls, but she also had chalk drawings that washed away when the rains came. Of course her most important art supply was her black artist's beret that had that "certain `je ne sais quoi,'" but one day a gust of wind took it away from her and it was lost. A light suddenly went out of her life and Bridget couldn't seem to draw any more. No one could find the beret and she no longer could draw because no other hat would do. How was she ever going to get over the loss of her beret? Was she ever going to be able to draw again?
This tale of Bridget and her problem with an "artist's block" is utterly charming and amusing. Bridget's passion for something she is very good can be seen in many children. Some children just love to do things such as drawing, dancing, or singing to the exclusion of other things. Her creativity is lovingly brought out in the artwork where her emotion and passionate love for her art can be seen in the subtle changes in her facial expressions. If you have a budding artist, or a youngster who is passionate about their creative abilities, this is one book you may wish to consider!

I love this book, and so does my now 5 year old daughter. We first checked it out of the library about a year and a half ago and fell in love with it. :)Published on February 18, 2013 by JR78
