Little Green

"Little Green" by Keith Baker is a picture  book about a boy watching a hummingbird flying around outside his window. The boy is sitting down ready to paint a picture. He watches and studies the movement of the hummingbird.

"Jigging, jagging, down up down. Dip, dip, dipping. Sip, sip, sipping. Looping in a curlycue...Little Green I still see you."

And the boy paints a colorful picture of lines, swirls, and zig zags.

I found out about this book through blog entries by art teachers who like to use this book with their students.
