I remember this book from my childhood. Take away: have a dream, go for it.

Two of my first grade students recommended this book to me after borrowing it from the library. It is a great find! Mr. Blumbean frees himself and his neighbors to create houses (artworks) that are expressions of their own dreams after his neat cookie-cutter house is splatted by a can of paint dropped by a seagull (no one knows why). Children love drawing their own "dream houses" after reading the book.

I really liked reading this to my kids. Maybe it's because I remember it being read to me as a kid. Great message. Be yourself.
