by Karen Lynn Williams & illustrated by Catherine Stock. PLB 0-688-13902-7 Paint scavenged from a garbage pile, bits of red brick and white rocks, and brushes painstakingly made from chicken feathers and goat hairs are the only tools Ti Marie can afford for her works of art. Determined and creative despite her family’s poverty, she discovers that the cement wall at the local marketplace makes a perfect easel for her lush and intricate paintings and also attracts a welcome crowd of customer to the stall where Mama sells tomatoes and onions.

Using whatever she can find - a scrap of wastepaper, a bit of charcoal - Ti Marie makes beautiful art. If only she had real paint and clean white canvas, what wonderful pictures she could paint then! Mama says there is no money for such things, but Ti Marie finds a surprising way to make her dreams come true. This contemporary story set in Haiti celebrates the joy of creativity.

Because her Haitian family is too poor to be able to buy paints for her, eight-year-old Ti Marie finds her own way to create pictures that make the heart sing. By the creators of Galimoto.
While the story was cute and I love how it teaches resourcefulness, I don't think they need to introduce a voodoo priest to children. I had to change the story as I read it. It really wouldn't take away from the story to just say this man is a local artist that the girl admires. My kids do not need to know about voodoo.
Is a really good book!!! Easy for kids to learn. I will recommend this book to other family, THE PICTURE ARE GREAT
This was a beautiful book. A bit long for my student's attention span, but that taking nothing away from the books content.
I've owned and used this story over many years in my 1st grade classroom, used more like it in days when we were allowed literature and the ability to talk about the world. I thought today (as I am out on leave with health issues) I'd order other books to join it, so I can put together a book box about Haiti. This will be my start. I'm sure children would like to read about this place that has now been so terrifically crushed by disaster on top of the weight it already bore in terms of poverty, infrastructure collapse, and in general as open sore on all our humanity.
I thought the story connected to something I know of young children, they like to express, create, and in almost any situation respond artistically in amazing ways.
I spent the day watching You Tubes on what life has really been like for children in Haiti. It isn't something I relate so much to the images of the book, but in the spirit of the people-yes-I see that.
I would imagine that this author would not mind if I suggest donating to the relief efforts.
I definitely know this would be doing something. But I think within schools we can spend time learning about the people, this horrible recent event, and trying to connect as we can to assist an utterly unbelievable situation.
Beautiful story, beautiful book. Captured the feelings of a hopeful girl in Haiti.
This is a beautiful story by Karen Lynn Williams with exquisite watercolor drawings by Catherine Stock telling the story of a resource poor, but imagination-rich little girl in Haiti who uses the things around her to paint (bricks, feathers) until she has an opportunity to have more people see her work.

The paintings within paintings concept is beautiful, especially as it follows the steps of a budding girl artist within the context of her family and their livelihood. Children will engage with the beautiful watercolors and story of people who make more with less.
