We love the charming artwork and hand-lettered text of Ish, written and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds.

Ramon is a little boy with a big imagination who “Loved to draw. Anytime. Anything. Anywere.” When his older brother laughs at his interpretation of a vase of flowers, he is dramatically discouraged. He tries to overcome this insecurity while at the same time make his drawings look “right.” He becomes more and more frustrated with himself, crumpling up each drawing. After he has given up, he is inspired to try again when he finds his little sister has been gathering up his crumpled up drawings and hanging them in her room. She points to the drawing of flowers that started his negative feelings and says “Well, it looks vase-ISH!”
