Comments for Something to Do

Something to Do: 07/09/11

 cover art (Link goes to Powells)Something to Do by David Lucas caught my attention last summer when my children were complaining of boredom. Little Bear in this book has the same problem and it's up to Big Bear to find something to do.

Big Bear takes Little Bear on a walk in the forest. Little Bear goes reluctantly. He doesn't start to have fun until he picks up a stick and starts to doodle in the dirt. Pretty soon both are drawing landscapes in the dirt.

The book highlights the importance and magic of the imagination. David Lucas's illustrations, especially the line drawings in the dirt bring to mind Crockett Johnson's Harold and the Purple Crayon books.

Five stars.
