I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More! by Karen Beaumont

I borrowed this from the library a couple of days ago and I’ve had to read this to my son a bunch of times.  There’s a lot of fun rhyming and the illustrations are gorgeous!

From Goodreads:

A dab of blue here, a splash of red there, a goopy smear of green . . . everywhere. To the tune of “It Ain’t Gonna Rain No More,” one creative kid floods his world with color, painting first the walls, then the ceiling, then HIMSELF! Before this feisty artist is through, he’ll have painted his head, back, hands, legs, feet, and . . . Oh no–here comes Mama!

Karen Beaumont’s zippy text and David Catrow’s zany illustrations turn an infamous childhood activity into raucous storytime fun, giving a silly twist to the fine art of self-expression.
