Niko Draws a Feeling by Bob Raczka, illustrations by Simone Shin


I love this book and am so looking forward to sharing it with my students.  The text is beautiful and poetic and captures exactly the frustration and the joy that comes from  communicating through art. I love the expressions, simply rendered, on the characters faces and the use of flowing lines to illustrate the creativity.   “It’s about the creative process, abstract art, friendship and the universal desire to be understood.”  (from the book jacket)
