Draw Me a Star is a colourful and entertaining picture book from Eric Carle, author-illustrator of The Very Hungry Caterpillar, that teaches children about drawing and creativity.
In this colourful and imaginative story about drawing, children are introduced to one of the essential creative activities of early childhood.
“Carle’s trademark style – vibrant tissue collage on dramatic white – is wonderfully effective in expressing the joy of creation, while the economy with which he conveys these universal ideas gives them extraordinary power. Yet the story is disarmingly childlike, concluding with an ingenuous letter from the author with instructions for drawing an eight-point star. Thanks be to the book for asking Carle to “draw” it!” – Kirkus Reviews
