    1. Welcome to Heather over analyzes a children s book yet again I got this book at the library because I thought Margaret would like it She s in a coloring phase and thought it would go well with that.The story started off nice enough His parents and family are supportive of his desire to do art When Tomie gets to kindergarten, he finds the quality of the art supplies disheartening It was a nice reminder it s probably better that my kids have a few good art supplies than a lot of crappy ones I thin [...]

    2. Tomie dePaola is one of my favorite children s author illustrators I love that this book is about how he became an artist It also discussed how other children have other hobbies and interests and talents, and how one finds a balance between conformity following rules, and individuality The main focus is on how Tommy Tomie develops and shares his talents with the world including through this book I especially loved the reference to the 64 box of Crayola crayons because everyone knows the Crayola [...]

    3. This book is good for children because it s about someone who is artistic but is forced to follow rules of the school He just wants to use his imagination and be an artist.

    4. A cute little book that teaches children to do what they are passionate about and to never give on their dreams I loved this book because it showed a child growing up and doing what he always wanted to do, draw Tommy , is passionate about drawing and has always been encouraged by his family in creating wonderful pictures He loved to draw his own pictures however when he started art lessons in school, this wasn t always the case He found his teacher dictated him into drawing what she wanted and n [...]

    5. This is a short autobiographical work about the artist author, and about how even as a boy he was an artist It did bring me back to how I valued those boxes of Crayola 64 colors of crayons When I was a bit older and found boxes with an even bigger color selection of crayons, I was in art heaven I was a bit bothered by the form of the resolution this story had re the boy s permission to be a the artist he was as a first grader, although Tomie dePaola certainly did ok with his background, so I gue [...]

    7. This is another book I read to my little sister She didn t seem to be interested in it much, and I found it incredibly boring There was a lot of big words that I could barely even read so I don t think children will really understand it unless you substitute them with different words I think it d be for a younger boy than a girl It was about how the author came to be an artist I would recommend it to young boys that are interested in art.

    8. What I believe to be Tomie dePaola s life story A young Tomie dePaola is excited to begin school because of art class Yet, when his dreams of art class are destroyed by a teacher who doesn t let the students be creative, the little boy doesn t let this bring him down This is a cute story that students love and helps teach perseverance and believing in yourself.

    9. Disappointing story, clearly autobiographical that goes into a bit too much unnecessary detail The lesson is that you can still use your Crayola crayons in art class if you follow the rules of copying the sample artwork first, even if you ve learned that real artists don t copy and you have your own full set of crayons.The Crayola product placement is particularly jarring They re just crayons Kids shouldn t be making brand identity value judgments Nor should adults It s a bit of a let down Not a [...]
