Overview

Ish by Peter H. Reynolds

A creative spirit learns that thinking “ish-ly” is far more wonderful than “getting it right” in this gentle new fable from the creator of the award-winning picture book The Dot.

Ramon loved to draw. Anytime. Anything. Anywhere.

Drawing is what Ramon does. It¹s what makes him happy. But in one split second, all that changes. A single reckless remark by Ramon's older brother, Leon, turns Ramon's carefree sketches into joyless struggles. Luckily for Ramon, though, his little sister, Marisol, sees the world differently. She opens his eyes to something a lot more valuable than getting things just "right." Combining the spareness of fable with the potency of parable, Peter Reynolds shines a bright beam of light on the need to kindle and tend our creative flames with care.

I love this story. I am using it as an introduction to the school year for grades 2-4! I want the children to learn like Carlos did that we can be rewarded for our effort not only the outcome. And better yet, without the slips in our day we would not learn how to do it better the next time!

I am a preschool teacher and have worked with many children that feel the need to make things 'perfect' who are then hesitant to try at all. I believe both kids and adults can benefit by adapting an 'ish' attitude into their lifestyles!
