a first grader’s sketchbook

One of my first graders gave me his sketchbook two weeks ago after having had a chat on registration day about what we had each been drawing over the summer. Am a fan of the patterns and textures he creates in his work. He definitely has a unique quality to his art and flipping through his sketchbook reminded me that I should be doing a lot more drawing myself.
