Legend of the Indian Paintbrush

The Legend of the Indian Paintbrush - Tomie dePaola

I love this book!!  It would be to broaden my students horizons with their knowledge of other cultures by reading this book.  It is very out there and mystical, but it does teach a pretty good lesson on not comparing your gifts to others', and on realizing that everyone plays an important role.  It has a 2.8 reading level.  I could have my students paint their own sunset scenes for fun.  It would be fun and different.
