Peter H. Reynolds’ stories and artwork are sweet and simple, and his central messages teach us about being better people. In “Ish” we learn that an artist can be hurt by harsh words, but revive and try again; in “Sky Color” we learn to look at the world around us with an artist’s eye and to persevere in problem solving; in “The Dot” we learn to overcome our fear of art-- just start, and see where our creativity takes us; in “Going Places” we discover the magic of teamwork; and finally, in “Plant a Kiss” (written by Amy Krouse Rosenthal and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds), we learn that the seeds of love that we share with others grow and make everyone happy.
