I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More, a Singable Picture Book

Posted on: April 27, 2014

I remind kids that the title of this book is not written in proper English.  I ask them, “If this were written correctly, what would it say?”  Someone will raise a hand and say “I’m not going to paint any more.”  Both are funny since “I’m not going to paint any more,” isn’t funny at all and “I Ain’t Gonna Paint No More,” is hilarious.

The book is hilarious, that’s for sure.

The rhymes are cleverly laid on in the illustrations so that you can have the kids “fill in the blank” with the missing word.  For example, the rhyme will be, “So I take some red and I paint my…”  and “Head” will be on the next page.  The kids love coming up with “Head” before we turn the page.

It is always fun to make rhymes.

And it’s extra fun within the context of this funny song.
