    This is a great story about seeing art in every day, and about doing art It s not a great story about how I can construct a sentence Sorry about that one The pictures are alive and active, and fit the words well.The text well, the text is written in a non standard dialect As far as I m concerned, this is all for the best It is GOOD for children to know that not everybody speaks the same way, that other people speak differently or, alternatively, that there s nothing wrong with the way This is a great story about seeing art in every day, and about doing art It s not a great story about how I can construct a sentence Sorry about that one The pictures are alive and active, and fit the words well.The text well, the text is written in a non standard dialect As far as I m concerned, this is all for the best It is GOOD for children to know that not everybody speaks the same way, that other people speak differently or, alternatively, that there s nothing wrong with the way they speak at home It is GOOD for people to havethan one way to speak The person who has two dialects is twice as smart and able as the person who only has one There is nothing shameful in speaking differently from one another, nothan there is in thinking differently What a terribly dreary world this would be if we all spoke the same way If you love language, you let it live, and languages live through changing.But if you re the sort who prefers your language dead in the dictionary, please read before you buy

    I love the friendship between the little boy and the artist The blurb says it all and the book successfully lives up to the promise implicit there.

    Devon always heads over to where the metal man welds his sculptures Today even though it is so very hot, he heads over to watch the sparks fly His mother says that everything the metal man makes is junk junk out of junk But Devon still loves spending time there This time, the sculptor asks Devon what he wants to make He s never done that before Devon has an idea, but is shy about sharing it until the sculptor tells him to Bring it on out to play So Devon tells him about the star house Devon always heads over to where the metal man welds his sculptures Today even though it is so very hot, he heads over to watch the sparks fly His mother says that everything the metal man makes is junk junk out of junk But Devon still loves spending time there This time, the sculptor asks Devon what he wants to make He s never done that before Devon has an idea, but is shy about sharing it until the sculptor tells him to Bring it on out to play So Devon tells him about the star house in his mind The two set out to build it out of scraps of metal together and when Devon brings it home, his mother has to admit that this certainly isn t junk.The text in this book has rhythm, an urban beat that makes for a great read aloud The sculptor is a great example of an African American man who is creative and caring A figure too seldom seen in picture books Hoppe s illustrations are thick lined and nicely capture the wonder on Devon s face as he sees his idea come to life Recommended as a great book on sculpting, but also a wonderful book about community and it taking a village to raise a child Appropriate for ages 5 8

    I missed this when it first came out, and only noticed it today This is a wonderful little story about the impulse to create art.Devon likes to spend his time hanging out with a neighbor who makes metal sculptures His mother and his other family members don t understand why someone would make junk out of junk, but Devon is fascinated by the process.On one special day, the neighbor encourages Devon to express his own creative impulses, and makes a piece of Devon s own designing It turns out I missed this when it first came out, and only noticed it today This is a wonderful little story about the impulse to create art.Devon likes to spend his time hanging out with a neighbor who makes metal sculptures His mother and his other family members don t understand why someone would make junk out of junk, but Devon is fascinated by the process.On one special day, the neighbor encourages Devon to express his own creative impulses, and makes a piece of Devon s own designing It turns out beautifully, and helps Devon s mother to understand what the neighbor is really doing It also helps Devon to understand how to fan the flames when there is a tiny spark of an idea.I would show this to kids who are interested in creating things, but who are hesitant to try

    I picked this book up at Source Books in Detroit , a store I d never been to before but happened to be passing by And since I am powerless to resist bookstores, I went in to look And since it s far easier for me to justify buying books for my son rather than books for myself, I asked if they had a children s section While they didn t have much, they did have Metal Man, which I suspected my four year old son would really like And I was correct I like that I picked this book up at Source Books in Detroit , a store I d never been to before but happened to be passing by And since I am powerless to resist bookstores, I went in to look And since it s far easier for me to justify buying books for my son rather than books for myself, I asked if they had a children s section While they didn t have much, they did have Metal Man, which I suspected my four year old son would really like And I was correct I like that it depicts art as real work worth doing My son likes that the Metal Man uses a fire torch We both win

    A young boy finds inspiration in a man that makes art from junk metal Mom is not convinced that the Metal Man is doing anything productive until she sees what her son has made with the help of his friend An inspiring story that teaches how much even non family adults can be a good influence on a young child and affect a life Nicely illustrated.

    Devon becomes fascinated by a man in the neighborhood who welds junk into sculptures Metal Man shows Devon that he can be a sculptor too, coaxing the ideas from Devon s head until it becomes a physical work of art that he can take home and show his mother This book is simple yet effective, teaching students that anyone can be an artist, especially when encouraged by a mentor.
