[A] The Art of Miss Chew by Patricia Polacco

1 Apr

The Art of Miss Chew by Patricia Polacco The Art of Miss Chew by Patricia Polacco (2012) is the true story of the art teacher that inspired the author and children’s book illustrator to become an artist. I found this book while looking for books for an assignment on family picture books throughout the decades. I have to admit that I was hoping for a good Chinese character because of the title, and I wasn’t disappointed. The title character is a Chinese woman, but the nice thing about Polacco’s portrayal of her is that she’s just another character in a touching book who happens to be Chinese.

This is a great picture book to inspire kids to overcome obstacles to follow their dreams. I also discovered later that Polacco was also the author of a childhood favorite of mine, The Keeping Quilt.

This post is my Blogging from A to Z entry for the letter A.
