Booklist Review

Ages 4^-7. In this unusual picture book, a young girl introduces us to her world through the artwork that she has created--paintings reflecting her moods, the world around her, and the world inside her head. Her works hang on the clothesline, adorn her easel and her room, and even decorate her kite. In reality her paintings are small reproductions of the artwork created by young patients at the M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas, and they are as varied as the children themselves, depicting flowers, animals, angels, abstract designs, the children's moods, and, of course, bunnies. Celebrating 25 years of the Cancer Center's Children's Art Project, the book is a testament to the innate talents of children and to the healing power of art. Tusa's endearing character and the artwork of the courageous children work together to serve as an inspiration to others who want to express themselves through art. The book concludes with an afterward by Barbara Bush, an introduction to the Children's Art Project, and the names and ages of the young artists. Children slightly older than the target audience may be interested in the wonderful art. --Helen Rosenberg


School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 2‘A celebration of a child's imagination. Tusa seamlessly weaves the artwork of pediatric patients at the M. D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX, with her own illustrations to tell the quiet story of a young girl who explores her world through her paints and crayons. The children's illustrations appear throughout, representing the creative output of the youngster featured in the story. Some of the pictures‘pink bunnies, houses on stilts‘are charming preschooler efforts, while others, like the watercolor of a deer, are astounding in their maturity and beauty. Tusa's narrative is guileless, complementing the innocence and earnest efforts of the young artists. The text is childlike without being forced or artificial. An outstanding picture book.‘Christine A. Moesch, Buffalo & Erie County Public Library, NY (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
