Wow! Looks at those illustrations! I wish I could draw like that!


Elisabeth Biernik, Rivermont Elementary


Drawn Together by Minh Le is the Hamilton Book of the week nominated by Rivermont Elementary. When a young boy visits his grandfather, their lack of a common language leads to confusion, frustration, and silence. But as they sit down to draw together, something magical happens-with a shared love of art and storytelling, the two form a bond that goes beyond words.
