Reading Rainbow: Brush


Author: Pere Calders

Translated by: Maguerite Feitlowitz

Illustrator: Carme Sole' Vendrell

Publisher: Kan/Miller Book Publishers

Description: Can inanimate objects really come to life? In BRUSH, a brush comes to life as replacement for a banished dog. All may not be what it seems when LeVar takes a look at the art of 3-D animation and visits the Macy's warehouse where the famous Thanksgiving Day parade balloons and floats come to life.

Activity Suggestion: Create an invitation to an imaginary "tea party" in which an inanimate object like Brush comes to the party. Each student must R.S.V.P., describing what will be attending, how it will be dressed and what food it plans to bring.
