Have you read Dot or Ish? Sky Color, by Peter H. Reynolds, is the third book in his Creatilogy. As a family, we love drawing, painting, and making things. We’ve been talking about making connections to text and self. Marisol, the young character in Sky Color is an artist, so it was easy for us to make a connection!
Marisol faces a problem in that she is going to paint the sky for a class mural, but doesn’t have blue paint in her box. By watching a sunset and remembering her dream, she comes up with a solution to her problem in a very colorful way. Seeing her creative solution is a delight! The great thing about the book is that is just opens up conversations about how to “see” things in different ways!
