Booktalk #1

Do you like to paint?  A dab of blue here.  A splash of red there.  A goopy smear of green everywhere!  Well, sometimes you're having so much fun painting, you can't stop.  That's what happens to the child in this book.  But Mama is not so understanding.  She hollers "Ya ain't a-gonna paint no more!"  But sometimes, you just can't help it.

Booktalk #2

Hey, kids! Grab your paintbrush and join the fun as we paint ourselves from head to toe! Uh oh! Look at the mess we’ve made. What will mother say? Do you think she will appreciate our artistic endeavors or will there be big time trouble? Find out in I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More! (Jean B. Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards, 2006-2007)
