Whether your little one is preparing to start school, apprehensive about a new year, or beyond happy about the approaching excitement, books are a fantastic way to talk about school and all the emotions it evokes.

I’m excited to share a new book that brings to life Pencil and Eraser (and with a lot of personality!).

When Pencil Met Eraser focuses on friendship and creativity in a picture book that’s designed for preschool and early elementary-age kids.

When Pencil draws on the pages of this book, Eraser erases parts of Pencil’s work, and the book itself becomes a canvas for their different takes on creativity—until the two discover their artwork is even better when they work together.

This book features clever and funny short lines of dialogue set upon beautiful art sketches. When Pencil Met Eraser offers a subtle, but easy way to talk with young kids about important school themes of making friends and teamwork.  

If your kids enjoy classics such as The Day the Crayons Quit or The Legend of Rock Paper Scissors, then this is the perfect book to pick up and enjoy before school starts. It can be purchased at national book and retail locations and online.
