In an effort to coax it back, the artist draws bright red cherries. The bird thwarts the plans of the artist until the artist is quite upset with the Magpie.
Wordless books are wonderful for helping a child's ability to observe and tell a story. The drawings in this book only show the hands of the artist and the bird and its antics, but the hands show so much emotion. Hands are not easy to draw, so for April Wilson to use the hands to show the personality and moods of the artist is pretty amazing.
You will love the art in this story and how fun the story is.
Read to a child today even if that child is you.
