About the book: A gentle story about finding your creative spark
Tapir wants to express himself, but he can't find the words! He and his friends all have nice new notebooks, just waiting to be filled. Giraffe decides to write a poem, Hippo writes a story, and Flamingo composes a beautiful song. But poor Tapir can't think of anything to write - and the harder he tries the more upset he becomes! But everything starts to change when Tapir stops trying to write and begins to draw...
Review: This cute picture book begins as Tapir gazes at a blank sheet of paper, holding his pencil, and trying to write. But sadly nothing is forthcoming. He is at "A Loss for Words" as the saying goes. But the real problem is he is lost because he has no words to put there on the paper.
His friends could. He couldn't. Why even the flamingo wrote her words and SANG them! Tapir was simply lost for words. He looked everywhere for words and couldn't find them. But the world was so beautiful to him. He looked. He picked up his pencil. He began to....... (well that would be telling, wouldn't it???).
Lost for Words will help the age 4-8 child discover that he or she can be creative, too.
