Doodleday Review by Karen Yuen

Doodleday is a whimsical book about a young boy whose mother instructs him NOT to draw on one particular day--Doodleday. As most little boys find, however, Harvey cannot resist drawing on Doodleday. What follows in the pages of this hardbound book is the silly story of how each of Harvey's drawings comes to life and leaps off his drawing pad! When it seems Harvey's drawings may bring disaster, Harvey's mother discovers the situation. By drawing a picture of herself, she leaps off the page and commands all the drawings to return to the sketchpad immediately.

This is the kind of book that young children ask to read and reread! After reading Doodleday , our kids couldn't wait to get out their sketchpads and draw. This would be a wonderful book to read before introducing kids to a new artist or before starting a hands-on art program at home. You'll enjoy this humorous and fun book!
