A fun read-aloud best told by singing!

This book is a storytime staple.
I handed out paintbrushes to the kids today and we painted our faces and bodies in imitation of the main character (using our imaginations).
Great book for - TALKING about body parts, PREDICTING rhyming words, SINGING a book rather than reading it.

In the rhythm of a familiar folk song, a child cannot resist adding one more dab of paint in surprising places. Themes – Painting, Bodies

Combines infectious melodies with concept-building, focusing on body parts. Each page sets us up with a rhyme then pauses to let the reader guess the painted part in question. "So I take some red and I paint my...HEAD!"

An ornery kiddo cannot resist adding one more dab of paint all over his body. This is one of my all-time favorite read-aloud books. Pair this book with a finger painting sesh and you're golden. (Or purple, or blue, or...)

What a fun story! A little kid steadily paints all over himself. A great idea is to read it with a paintbrush so your little one can pretend to "paint" on herself along with the book.

Wonderful story time book. It's a simple story with a FANTASTIC rhythm.

It also offers the opportunity for children to chime in with various body parts as they get painted - helping the storyteller complete the rhyme.

This young girl has a wonderful time painting and singing and getting into trouble!
Another of my story time favorites!
