When the little artist of I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More by Karen Beaumont is caught by his Mama painting the ceiling, walls, curtains and door he is told, “YA AIN’T A-GONNA PAINT NO MORE!” However, that is not the case. As the story continues, the black and white pages are filled with color as he creates a work of art. The rhyming text is written to the tune of “It Ain’t Gonna Rain No More.” Each verse stars the little one painting a part of his body a different color. Red for his head, green for his neck, pink for his chest, and on and on 'til he comes to his butt… Too bad there is no more paint! All out of paint, and in the bath tub, he promises, “I ain’t gonna paint no more!" This adorable story of a precocious artist is written in a bouncy beat, with beautiful black and white illustrations that slowly gain color as the story progresses. This a great book to read to talk about color and body parts. It can be read or sung--either way it is an enjoyable tale that any parent and child can relate to. See this book listed in our catalog
