The Paint Brush Kid by Clyde Robert Bulla is actually the sequel to the Chalk Box Kid but you can enjoy it on its own. This book for grades 2-4 is about a child-artist named Gregory who wants to do a huge, fun art project. When his friend Uncle Pancho finds out that he is about to lose his house, Gregory knows what his art project will be. He paints a huge mural all the way around Uncle Pancho’s house! You’ll have to read the book to find out if Gregory can save his friend’s house.
This is book is great for kids who can read on their own who like stories about friendship and painting.
