Great Inclusion Message!

This charming book delivers an easy to understand message that sometimes people in our group act differently than we do , and that 's ok! The text is written in clever rhyme and the colorful illustrations do a great job of distinguishing between the different paintbrush characters. This would be a terrific resource for any classroom which includes "differently-abled" students.

Beautiful, well-written story

The author did a wonderful job of showing how many different bushes can work together in their own ways to create a wonderful masterpiece. As a Special Education teacher, I especially appreciated the loving and accepting manner in how every brush was given it's own time and way to contribute to the final masterpiece.

Perfect and Relatable

This is a perfect book for preschoolers through adults to introduce and relate to children with different abilities. The characters are so sweet and the metaphor of paintbrushes, each unique, creating a “masterpiece” is positive and poignant!!

A beautiful book

The illustrations in this book are truly lovely. The way the artist captured the different personalities of the brushes came through loud and clear. And the message is a good one as well.

Illustrations are beautifully and tastefully done. They support the narrative and add to eat while avoiding competing with the text. Love the rhymes abs cadence of the story and the plot is fantastic, entertaining and easy to follow yet has an important message!

My 8 year old loved it

She really loved the masterpiece when it was finished. And she loved how the brushes included everyone, even when they acted a bit differently.
