The Art Lesson by Tomie dePaola

"I am going to be an Artist when I grow up and my cousins told me that artists don't copy." said Tomie dePaola. I made two connection with Tommie, the boy this book is about,  because I love art and he loves art too. And he brought 64 Crayola crayons to school and I brought my iPhone to school. Both of our teachers didn't want us too. If you like art and biography books, than I suggest that you should read The Art Lessen and all of Tomie DePaola's books.
