August Book of the Month: I Ain't Gonna Pain No More!

I Ain't Gonna Paint No More!

by Karen Beaumont, illustrated by David Catrow
Storytelling set to the rhythm of the familiar folk song, “It ain’t gonna rain no more!”; Author, Karen Beaumont, tells the tale of a creative little boy who loves to paint so much so, that he can’t resist painting himself!  The story rhymes, allowing listeners to guess which body part the little boy will paint next.  What will mom think when she finds out what he has painted now? 
This is a great book to learn or reinforce body awareness.   Don’t forget to enjoy the black and white detailed ink illustrations that get splashed with a rainbow of vibrant colors.

Here is an art project that goes perfectly with this book that we found on teachpreschool.org.  After the kids paint, cut the outline to create a perfectly painted arm!
