Item Description...
A shy African American boy makes friends with his classmates by drawing a picture of a tree.

Publishers Description
On his way to school one winter day, David, a shy, creative young boy, sees a beautiful bare tree. When he gets to his classroom, he takes out a piece of paper and starts to draw the tree he has seen. His classmates are intrigued by his picture and begin to approach with suggestions. David tries some of them out, then invites his classmates to help. Amanda adds grass, Ryan adds leaves, Jamal adds some stickers, Kira adds clouds. As the picture develops, David enjoys the interaction and attention, and begins to make new friends. He proudly writes "Our Class Picture" on the finished work, including himself in the group. When David gets home from school, he begins a picture of the tree again, finding satisfaction in doing something on his own as well as creating a reminder of the activity that helped him make friends at school.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
David, a bright and expressive child loves to draw. He decides to draw a tree and in so doing, the other children in his class make suggestions and add to the picture. One child adds a pair of smiling blue birds, another some grass, another some leaves, another drew himself until each classmate has included something on the original drawing. David then takes the picture and identifies it as a class drawing before proudly displaying it on the class bulletin board.

David remains cheerful and delighted that each of his classmates want to participate in his drawing. The diversity is beautifully expressed through the pictures without any other reference. I like the inclusive feel of this story and the beautiful illustrations and appealing characters.

I love this book. The children are all races and no distinction is made. This book celebrates artistic expression, creativity and cooperation. This is something to treasure and share with others.

A Celebration of Creativity and Friendship  Nov 20, 2001
This is a charming story about creativity and friendship. David begins to draw, and this attracts other children in the classroom. He invites them to participate---and together they share their imaginations to create a class drawing and new friendships as well. Later at home, David makes a drawing of his own. There is no judgement here: the message is that sometimes art can be a group activity and sometimes it can be a personal experience. The colaboration of a diverse, multiethnic classroom of children celebrates cooperation and friendship.
A relaxing and comforting book for shy children  Nov 1, 2001
David is a shy young boy who, upon arrival at school, decides to draw a tree he had seen on the way. Each of his classmates makes suggestions for the drawing and adds a variety of elements - stickers, people, even a rainbow. David takes pride in the drawing and enjoys his new friends; the picture is put up on the classroom wall, and David continues drawing upon his arrival home.

A relaxing and comforting tale for children who face having to make new friends, "David's Drawings" is imaginative and reassuring. The bold, bright colors will encourage children to draw on their own, and in-group situations. Fine, thin line-drawn shapes give a sense of dimension, while the apparent mix of tempura, watercolor, and charcoal pencils add depth and texture. An added bonus is the crayon appearance of David's drawings, which give the illustrations a familiar feel to children. Pair this title with other books on making friends for a successful themed storytime.
