In this story there are kids that go to the park and start drawing stuff with chalk. Whatever they draw comes to real like. One kid draws a dinosaur and they have to draw rain so the dinosaur will wash away.
I really like the illustrations in this story. They are pretty close to life like and very detailed.

When a group of children find a magical bag of chalk they realize everything they draw comes to life. They draw a sun and the rain goes away! One girl draws butterflies and another boy draws a T-Rex. The T-Rex comes to life and scares all of the children. The rain comes back and the T-Rex melts away. ( )

This book is so adorable! This book pushes readers to think about all possibilities of imagination. The illustrations were drawn excellently. I love the three-dimensional drawings and detail in every picture. The characters are believable and well-developed. Children easily believe and allow their imagination to take them to far away places in their mind. I think the big idea in this message is to explore your imagination as if you were still young. It is possible for the imaginable to com true. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0761455264, School & Library Binding)

A rainy day. Three kids in a park. A dinosaur spring rider. A bag of chalk. The kids begin to draw. . . and then . . . magic! The children draw the sun, butterflies, and a dinosaur that amazingly come to life. Children will never feel the same about the playground after they experience this astounding wordless picture book and the power of the imagination. Bill Thomson embraced traditional painting techniques and meticulously painted each illustration by hand, using acrylic paint and colored pencils.
