This small boy loves to paint. He paints on the floors, and the walls, and the ceilings. His mom becomes very upset, hides his paint and says that he ain’t gonna paint no more! However he has different ideas. He find the hidden paint and paints his entire body.

This book is great because it utilizes rhyming in every body part the boy paints. It also has been written to go along with the tune of  “It Ain’t Gonna Rain No More.” The pictures are big, and bright, and hilarious! You can tell how much the boy loves painted by the expression on his face. Kids will have fun guessing the next painted body part, the zany designs, and the mischievous little boy.
