Perfect by Max Amato

Perfect by Max Amato was published in 2019 and my grand kids think this book is funny.

The story begins with a clean eraser on a clean page. Pencil joins the story and starts drawing on the page, and Eraser is able to wipe out all the marks. 

The story progresses with more and more writing on the page and Eraser struggling to keep the page clean until finally. Eraser can't keep up, and the page is all in pencil. 

Eraser discovers that he can draw pictures by erasing. I liked the humor of the illustrations. 

This is a fun story that would be great to use as a lead up to an art lesson or one on working together. 

Nancy Frandsen sent 25 books for our NICU book project. Sandra Boynton books are so much fun.  Thank you so much, Nancy. 

Link to our NICU book registry to donate books to babies in the newborn intensive care unit so their parents can read to them while they grow. You can also donate gently used books to our project by sending them to me or to Angie. Email me for a mailing address. We can use both English and Spanish books. If you have a graduate of the NICU, or if you have a baby whose life you would like to honor by donating books to this project, let me know, and I can make a book plate with their name for the books you donate.

Read to a child today even if that child is you.
