I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More by Karen Beaumont, illustrated by David Catrow
We have purchased this book twice due to the fact that it wore out because of incessant use. David Catrow is the most amazing illustrator because of the vivacity of his pictures. The characters written by the author become alive with colors that literally splash the entire page. Every child can identify with this character because all of us have done something we were told not to by our mothers. This book is also one that you can sing or at least read in rhythm. That makes it a perfect read for small children up to older Encountering an audience failing to be spellbound by this book would prove difficult; often the children laugh out loud.
