Each page is done in soft colored pencils, with using only one color besides they grey and white, if any other color at all. Tiny red berries peek from branches on a tree on one page, while blue ice sits on a pond on the next.  These sparing uses of color build up to when the moon comes out and lights up the northern night-a spread in which Isabelle Arsenault captures the feeling of the entire book.

Cute activity to go along with the David books.  Draw a picture of a time when you got in trouble like David.  :-)  If you don't know David, you need to buy your kids some books by David Shannon.  lol

I believe this book would be a great resource to use in a classroom to get the children interested in art.  After reading the book you can have them paint an octopus with many different colors to let their imaginations soar.  This is a great example of tying art into literature that was shown in the reading.
