Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Sara has had a terrible day, and to top it off, her teacher has chosen her to create the most wonderful painting for the second — grade art show. Sara decides to paint the entire universe, but how does she begin to paint something that is so big?

Everyone has advice for Sara, but it is up to her to figure out how to begin. Sara discovers that procrastination and creative block are part of the process of starting her picture, as any artist knows.

Begin at the Beginningoffers a universal message about creativity and how every little artist experiences life.

Synopsis:

In this appealing story of a little girl who is selected by her teacher to do the class painting for an art show, Schwartz portrays the frustrations of the creative process and how a lesson in life is learned when that process is jump-started. Full color.
