5.0 out of 5 stars Worlds at the tip of your paintbrush, January 2, 2007
This review is from: Art (Hardcover)
I agree w/ the elementary teacher who commented about 'grownup art not being sufficient if Mcdonnell's celebrating children's art'. It was my first reaction when I saw the images (I'm also a teacher).

HOWEVER, since this book makes no claims to be original children's art, I can love this book unconditionally. I read through it and I have to say that the book is beautiful. It echoes children's art, the freedom and joy of movement even though it's drawn by a seasoned artist. In this way does Mcdonnell celebrate children's art even if he cannot recreate it. The world created in the book is as whimsical as any story I've watched pre-K kids create. The narration is beautiful.

I love this book and have added it to my personal collection.
