My Best Friend Is as Sharp as a Pencil: And Other Funny Classroom Portraits

My Best Friend Is as Sharp as a Pencil: And Other Funny Classroom Portraits Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Here's the perfect back-to-school gift for budding artists. Like the creator's previous picture book, My Dog Is as Smelly as Dirty Socks, this picture book encourages children to be creative and make their own object portraits. It's a fun activity for home or for the classroom. You can even check out portraits made by other readers in the "kids' gallery" of author Hanoch Piven's Web site, www.pivenworld.com—and while you're at it, send in your own!

Learn how to create a funny librarian, a colorful art teacher, or your best friend by seeing how one girl does it in this simple, playful picture book that's comprised of portraits made of objects. Once the girl has talked about—and drawn—the key figures in her school, she ends with the pièce de résistance—a class portrait!

From the Hardcover edition.

Synopsis:

When her grandma asks her about school, a girl draws a class portrait, adding details that show what makes each person special.
