Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Mary Quattlebaum
What if a child's best efforts are somehow denigrated by the teacher? No Good in Art opens thus: 'When Jim was in kindergarten, the art teacher said, "Dear, your man has no neck." Then she took Jim's brush and said, "You ought to make your grass with thin lines like this." And she painted her grass right on the picture.' Because of his teacher's well-meaning but insensitive treatment, Jim concludes that he's not very gook in art, until his first grade art teacher and schoolmates encourage his next tentative artistic efforts and praise him for his accomplishment. Hoban's vivid illustrations capture the exuberant nature of creative children and their art. 1996 (orig.
