A Splash of Red: The Life and Art of Horace Pippin

13642600“A Splash of Red: The Life and Art of Horace Pippin” by Jen Bryant is a beautiful story about Horace Pippin, a self-taught African American painter, who from an early age drew and held on to his art despite numerous life obstacles. This is a perfect read aloud for elementary grades. I had many, many students, who made amazing drawings on every test, assignment and spelling practice; that never got them into trouble :). This is a perfect read to teach biography genre, reading comprehension skills, American history, character analysis, content specific vocabulary, etc.

An absolute gem.
