Something to Do by David Lucas was another bargain find this past weekend. The story begins with a common phrase children say, "There's nothing to do." The illustrations are drawn with a crayon or cray-pas feel and reminds me a lot of Harold and the Purple Crayon without the purple. The colors here are barn red and navy blue on a cream background. I think this enhances the warm feel to the simplistic illustrations. Baby Bear is bouncing on a larger bear to wake him or her up only to declare there is nothing to do. The bears begin a journey to find something to do. After a long walk, there is nothing to do. Then they find a stick and break it in half. Two sticks let the two bears each have a stick and together they draw creating new adventures. They decide they are hungry and return home to report in they found a little something to do to. In reality, they found a lot to do. The reader will have to use their eyes and think about the pictures to see the adventures that were created with the sticks. I think it promotes using a tool or object in a new way to create fun. The language has some repetitive parts to encourage shared reading. This book has lots of little different tidbits and I'm anticipating it will be a favorite in our classroom.
