About «Patrick Paints a Picture »
“Let’s paint a picture of that cornfield,” says Aunt Emily to Patrick as they sit looking out from the shade of a tree. Patrick puts a yellow blob on his palette to paint the corn, but a red squirrel runs into the field; when he puts down red, a bluebird appears. Each page reveals a new color and a new creature — until Patrick's palette is filled with colors and the field with animals. This simple, vividly illustrated story encourages children to spot the next creature while learning about color.
