Book Review: Iā€™m Not Just a Scribble

Recommended for all ages

This cute book comes with a double payoff, a great story about being kind to friends who may be a little different than us and an encouraging story for budding artists about how rules don’t apply when it comes to creating beautiful art. ‘I’m NOT just a Scribble’ by Diane Alber is a story of a little scribble who has lots of confidence, until he meets some bigger drawings who point out his differences. Suddenly, he’s left feeling sad and without a friend, that is until he is able to show his new friends how important working together is. I love watching the mind of my little budding artist work, a dab of paint here, a smear of different color right over top, and a splash of glitter because why not? Right now, she can create based on feelings and not based on standards of beauty she’s learned from society. I hope she never loses her creative spirit and we plan to read this book over and over again so she can always be reminded that all art is beautiful.
