just because one person doesn't like something it doesn't mean everyone doesn't. confidence.

Emily's first grade teacher Ms. Fair announces to the class that they will be creating pieces of art to enter in a contest. She explains what a contest is and that a contest means finding out who is the best. Every day that week Emily paints something different and really creative. Her best friend Kelly just paints a different colored butterfly everyday. The nest day in the contest, the judge says that she hates dogs and therefor hates Emily's painting, and Kelly's butterfly wins. Emily gets discourages and buries her paintings under leaves in the playground and vows to never paint again. Emily feels "sick" and asks to go to the nurse. Later, Kelly arrives also feeling "sick". The kids were asking her to paint them pictures but she only knew how to paint a butterfly. Emily teaches her how to paint a dinosaur and Kelly tells Emily that she is a really good artist. Emily gains confidence again and realizes that just because one person doesn't like her art, doesn't mean it is bad. She retrieves her painting from outside and go back to class where Ms. Fair is celebrating everybody's artwork. Appropriate for ages 4-6.

This seems like the sort of book that Mr. Catalanotto might have written about his own daughter. I really liked it. I was impressed and I loved the message. ( )

Sometimes to really understand one’s art, a second chance at learning is required, this book shows a passion and a talent that would not be ignored. Book Review
