When David sees Becky, a talented artist, drawing in the park, he approaches her and asks him to teach him how to draw. What begins as a quick lesson on a park bench turns into a summer full of drawing lessons and a friendship. A combination of graphic novel and instructional book, The Drawing Lesson is more than just the story of how a young boy learns to draw. It serves as an entertaining and accessible teaching tool for its readers. As Becky teaches David the fundamentals of drawing, the reader follows along and is encouraged to complete the exercises at the end of each chapter. When Becky moves away, her drawing lessons with David come to an end. But Beckyís influence on David and Davidís passion for art remain. The Drawing Lesson beautifully illustrates the importance of friendship and the great influence a mentor can have on a person. (Vermont Dorothy Canfield Fisher Book Award, 2018)
