I Ain't Gonna Paint No More

I Ain't Gonna Paint No More, by Karen Beaumont, is one of those great picture books that grabs whatever child hears it. A friend gave us this book a year or two ago and it has been well-loved, but we had forgotten about it over the last few months. I pulled it out this afternoon and was reading it with my two year old and within a few minutes my 7 year old was sitting on the couch next to us filling in the rhyming words and he had informed me just today that he was too old to be interested in picture books. I Ain't Gonna Paint No More is a rhyming, sing-song sort of book that involves a little boy painting a lot of places he shouldn't! The story has so much rhythm that it even works for reading aloud to babies, unfortunely, I don't think it comes in a board book. Check it out, your kids will love it!

this sounds like a really good one! I think we should start making a list on good reads all the kids books I should start keeping my eye out for! Like the really good ones! Like you said Hayd does really love the sing song rhyming stuff!
