She decides to give it a try, but it’s not until the rubber meets the road...more

Hello, friends! Our book today is Eraser, written by Anna Kang and illustrated by Christopher Weyant, a look at how teamwork requires respect and cooperation.
Eraser is just as hardworking and dedicated as the other school supplies, but she can’t help but feel overlooked. After all, nearly all the other supplies create something, but her work leaves no trace behind. What’s worse, while she does ...more
Pencil is cool and only needs Eraser when she makes mistakes. Eraser becomes tired of being Pencil's "pooper scooper" and tries to show she can do more than "fix mistakes" but the "cool kids" only see her as the clean-up. When Eraser runs away, Pencil and the other school tools realize they need her. There are also several puns throughout the storyline that will appeal to primary age readers. Eraser is a book to add to a collection of themes about being unique, we all have some ...more

Eraser wants to be more than just the one who cleans up the mess. The most popular supplies, like crayon, highlighter, glue and pencil are the creative ones. And “Tape and Glue, they can get anyone to stick together.” Eraser would like to be creative, too. But none of the other supplies are willing to give Eraser a chance. “Eraser has one job: to clean up after me. It’s not my fault she can’t actually make anything.” So Eraser decides to run away and ...more
Eraser is discouraged because she isn’t creative like Pencil and some of her other friends. All she can do is take things away, never making something new. But when Eraser isn’t around Pencil discovers he needs the grace of second chances she provides. Working together they find that each brings out the best in the other. Teachers or librarians might share this brief story with children then share a book or two illustrated by Floyd Cooper in which the art was created by pai ...more
Gag. But on a second reading I enjoyed it. Sure, there's a lesson here, but it is carefully disguised in a funny story with lots of jokes for kids big enough to get them, and energetic art. This is about a 3.75, but I decided on the 3 because of the jacket. Get a b ...more
This book was super cute I enjoyed the characters . Period we connected with each and every one of them my daughter and I thought it was a super cute book I suggest that anyone buy it and read it to their elementary age student children because it is so adorable the author did a great job it teaches you that in the race using your racer on your pencil you can do way more than you actually thought you could in a very cute way of saying It
Cute and witty. I can't wait to share it with my daughter. Relatable character for the young reader and funny commentaries for the parents (ie you're so sharp pencil and you make a fine point pencil sharpener)
Lessonsd: everyone is important, it's all about perspective, and team work makes the dream work.
This brings the fact that mistakes are made, and it is good that some can be corrected even if merely by eraser. Humor is shown in Whiteout and his friend Eraser wanting to be more than they are. The first drafts show Eraser that sometimes we have friends we don't always know about. This is a pleasant quick read for all.
I spend much of the beginning of the year teaching students how to fail. We use the acronym First Attempt In Learning. This goes beyond that and connects it to second chances or trying again. It teaches patience and persistance. This would also be a great way to introduce the Engineering and Design process. I love the possibilities.
Even though I'm a young 65, this book was my instant pick for the month. I can't say Kindle prime fiction choices appeal to me. Wish there were more nonfiction choices. This sweet story was thoroughly delightful for the kid that should still be in all of us.
The illustrations are adorable. I love each of the little characters.
"I'm tired of being the cleanup crew," said eraser. Don't you ever want to be more? Everyone gather for a science project meeting. Not you eraser. This is a creative meeting. That might her make a picture that pencil sharpener and ruler liked. Achoo!!! Picture gone. Eraser gets upset ...more
