Lily Brown's Paintings

Written by: Angela Johnson

First line: Lily Brown loves her mama, daddy, and baby brother and the world they live in.

Why you should read this book: In a story about the power of art and imagination, Lily Brown transforms her world into a magical place. Her paintings portray skill, whimsy, and wonder, and transport her, and the reader, to a place of fantasy and surprise. But Lily Brown always returns at the end of the day to the real world, which is just as amazing as her imagination.

Why you shouldn't read this book: You fear your child's fantasy world.
