In this picture book written and illustrated by Natalie Russell, Tapir and his friends have gotten nice new notebooks in which to express themselves. Giraffe comes up with a poem, Hippo writes an exciting story, and Flamingo composes a song about the sun. Tapir tries but can’t think of any words to write on the page. In a place of solitude, he sees the light. His talent has nothing to do with words: he can draw! Tapir proves to be a gifted artist whose images thrill his friends.
Both adults and children will be exhilarated by Russell’s story, which shows that God loves diversity in creativity (Peachtree Publishers).
