Thoughtful Thursday

The Most Magnificent Thing written and illustrated by Ashley Spires is dedicated to all the little perfectionists in the world. Hmmmm, sounds interesting.
It's about a girl and a dog and how the girl loves to make things. She makes a plan; she hires an assistant.  She gathers her supplies and gets to work.  But it's not as 'easy-peasy' as she thought.  After making several, many, and lots of attempts, she throws a royal fit.  It's time to take a break and go for a walk.  When she comes back, she realizes that some pieces are really quite nice and she takes the good parts and puts them all together and Viola! It really is a magnificent thing!  You'll love what her new invention is.  
The artwork in this book was rendered digitally with lots of practice, two hissy fits and one all out tantrum.  I'll use this with Kindergarten and older students.  It will fit right in with any program on building anything.
