The Eraserheads

The Eraserheads By Kate Banks
Grades K-4

Three eraserheads live atop a little boy's pencils. It's their job to erase his mistakes, and they are very good at it. One day they get caught in the middle of the boy's large drawing with a tidal wave and wild animals. The eraserheads must do some quick thinking to get themselves out of this scary adventure. I love the theme of this book that it's okay to make mistakes because EVERYONE makes mistakes. Would make a great story as part of an art lesson or just a reminder that nobody is perfect...which we could all use sometimes.
