A shy young African American boy makes friends in school by letting his classmates help with his drawing of a bare winter tree.

One winter day David sees a beautiful bare tree. As soon as he gets to school, this shy young boy who loves to draw begins a beautiful picture of the tree he has seen. One by one his classmates come by with suggestions for the drawing, but the fun really starts when they all join David to add grass, stickers, clouds, a rainbow, and other imaginative details to the picture. And as the drawing develops, David overcomes his shyness and finds a way to make new friends.

David's Drawings is a gentle celebration of a child's creativity that speaks directly to the experiences of children. This reassuring story is sure to provide comfort and encouragement as children face the challenge of making friends in new situations.
