|When Pencil Met Eraser|
It is Back to School season and this book seems like the perfect fit for it. When Pencil Met Eraser is a delightful picture book that is probably best enjoyed by children ages 3 - 7. There aren't a lot of words but it has delightful pencil drawings, humor and an excellent message that is embedded in the story of how teamwork leads to a win-win. Based on my experience with reading at bedtime with my kids long ago, this book has that feel of one that will be requested that you read over and over and will essentially be memorized.
As I read the book myself I realized that I was smiling at the illustrations. The black and white pencil drawings with the yellow pencil and pink eraser are real attention getters.
Here is one of my favorite two page spreads...
And this page is said to be A-MAZE-ING!
