Product description

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 1-Peter travels the route from school to home showing his best picture ever (a large orange flower) along the way. His neighbors-Mrs. Dog, Uncle Bear, Mr. Boar, and Mr. Mole-all show appreciation of the cub's talent, but they make, in the young bear's eyes, over-the-top suggestions. "Let me smell it," "Let me give it to my bees," "-let me put it in a vase," "-let me water it for you." Only his parents seem to know how to properly appreciate their child's work: his father frames it and displays it on the living room wall. The story is slight, and Peter's refrain to his well-intentioned neighbors, "Oh, no!-That's not right! But thanks anyway" is a bit stilted. The charm of this book lies in Gorbachev's pen-and-ink and watercolor illustrations. The homey scenes call to mind a cheery sensibility in the not-so-distant past. The large, full-page pictures make the book easy to share at storyhour. The artist's skill outweighs the weakness of the text and makes this a pleasant spoof of the somewhat patronizing adult appreciation of children's art.
