Book Description

March 24 2005 Ala Notable Children's Books. Younger Readers (Awards)
A dab of blue here, a splash of red there, a goopy smear of green . . . everywhere. To the tune of "It Ain't Gonna Rain No More," one creative kid floods his world with color, painting first the walls, then the ceiling, then HIMSELF! Before this feisty artist is through, he'll have painted his head, back, hands, legs, feet, and . . . Oh no--here comes Mama!

Karen Beaumont's zippy text and David Catrow's zany illustrations turn an infamous childhood activity into raucous storytime fun, giving a silly twist to the fine art of self-expression.

Product Description

From School Library Journal

Starred Review. PreSchool-Grade 2–When Mama catches her son "paintin' pictures on the floor/and the ceiling/and the walls/and the curtains/and the door," she sticks him in the tub and declares, "Ya ain't a-gonna paint no more!" Fresh from his bath, the child rescues his hidden supplies and says, "So I take some red/and I paint my…/HEAD!" Subsequent rhymes move from neck down to feet as he adds gobs of color to different areas. Since the last word of each verse comes on the following page, readers get the satisfaction of completing the anticipated rhyme and seeing each newly painted body part with each page turn. Catrow splashes color all over, uses white space cleverly, and includes playful flourishes, such as a marching row of ants on the boy's arm and Easter egg designs on his leg. Elongated figures and exaggerated expressions match the silly tone of the story, and the concerned dog who observes the antics is particularly amusing. With rhymes that invite audience participation and scenes that draw the eye, this is a strong storytime choice. Based on the song "It Ain't Gonna Rain No More," the rhythmic text can be read or sung with equal effectiveness. In a mischievous conclusion, when readers think that the boy has painted everything, he finishes with, "But I'm such a nut,/gonna paint my–/WHAT?!" Fortunately, he's out of supplies and winds up back in the bathtub.–Steven Engelfried, Beaverton City Library, OR

Review

American Library Association Notable Book   "Catrow splashes color all over, uses white space cleverly, and includes playful flourishes, such as a marching row of ants on the boy's arm and Easter egg designs on his leg. Elongated figures and exaggerated expressions match the silly tone of the story, and the concerned dog who observes the antics is particularly amusing. With rhymes that invite audience participation and scenes that draw the eye, this is a strong storytime choice." - School Library Journal   "Given the plot's premise, Catrow's humorously hyperbolic art fittingly takes center stage here, growing increasingly flamboyant and electric as the boy embellishes more and more of his anatomy-and his playful pooch becomes equally well decorated." - Publisher's Weekly --This text refers to the Board book edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paint on.... Aug. 4 2014
By Storywraps TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
This little boy is a master painter. He loves colours, creating and freeing himself to be a frenzied conductor of the Painting Rhapsody of Embellishment. He twists and turns, swipes and brushes like one lost in the beauty of his vibrant creation. He magically transforms the walls, the ceilings and finally his magnum opus?....HIMSELF! He dabs and strokes and dribbles, oozing psychedelic blobs on his head, back, hands, legs and feet...why even his dog gets a colourful, sticky makeover. Then in comes the great force that will terminate this aspiring painter's movements and tune....in walks MOM!!!

This fun, witty book is written in rhyme and can be sung to the signature tune of ," It Ain't Gonna Rain No More".... if you dare. It is perfect for a story time read. The humorous illustrations and text will have not only your child laughing out loud but asking for the story again and again. May the art of self-expression never die!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very fun Dec 26 2008
Format:Hardcover
As a mother, arts teacher and also a student completing my BFA in art education, this book came highly recommended to get children interested in color and mixing paint. It is also a great book to get children to participate in reading and having lots of fun doing so. My 3 year old son adores it and I find it very funny to read and look. I must in a house and school!
