Editorial Reviews

Review

“Kang tells a good, pun-filled story, and Weyant’s anthropomorphic school supplies are both enjoyable and emotive…The book will find a loving home among readers who like a softer tone. A sweet parable on cooperation.” Kirkus Reviews

“Finally, the mighty Eraser gets her own book and distinctive voice in this desktop drama…Puns abound in the clever writing. The lively and expressive cartoon characters’ features and figures are done in ink, watercolor, and brush pens, which animate their pedestrian functions into art. Fun for kids who spend important learning time with these objects.” Booklist

“A delightful picture book that emboldens readers to embrace mistakes and elevates the eraser to hero status. A fun addition for storytimes and classroom read-alouds.” School Library Journal

“Without being heavy on message, this book provides a fun way to think about appreciating differences and recognizing different kinds of talents—as well as some entertaining bibliotherapy for perfectionists.” Youth Services Book Review

Eraser is a must-read-aloud for #classroombookaday because it will support building a classroom community among students.” Beagles and Books

“A big-hearted picture book full of amusing puns, delightful characters, lively illustrations, and important lessons.” Word Spelunking

“I love how Eraser shows kids that everyone makes mistakes, and we all deserve another chance. It’s a good lesson about everyone being important.” Christy’s Cozy Corners

“Young readers will enjoy this funny and entertaining read-aloud and teachers will appreciate the book’s ability to communicate an important message about how everyone contributes to the team without coming across as preachy.” Kid Lit Frenzy

“Sweet, honest, and humorous…Perfect for classrooms and home libraries.” Mrs. Mommy Booknerd

“What a great back-to-school read-aloud!” proseandkahn

“Sure to be as popular as Kang and Weyant’s other titles, this upbeat story about working together and getting a second chance is a great addition to any school or library collection. Recommended.” Jean Little Library

“Full of puns that will make kids laugh out loud, Anna Kang has written a sweet and humorous story that teaches students about recognizing your potential, the power of cooperation, and how mistakes make us great.” Beagles and Books

“I really enjoyed this story and I think kids will too…This story lends itself to lots of discussion or debate with young readers.” The Late Bloomer’s Blog

Eraser is a delightful new picture book that emboldens readers to embrace mistakes and elevates the eraser to hero status. This engaging book is a MUST add to your regular story time or read-aloud routine with young children. If your goal is to teach kids to be brave not perfect, Eraser is the book for you.” Biracial Bookworms

“A must-read for any preschool classroom.” Where Imagination Grows

From the Publisher

As an editor, I know that revision can take a story from good to great. And when I first read this book from Anna Kang and Christopher Weyant, winners of the Theodor Seuss Geisel Award, I really related to the idea of trying to make something the best version of itself—or in this case, herself. The authors and illustrators I work with do this every day with their storytelling.

At its heart, though, this is a story of a spunky girl finding her way and finding happiness. Eraser thinks she knows what she wants—the chance to create things rather than being the underappreciated cleanup crew. Ultimately, she goes on a journey that shows her how important she is and that she does create something wonderful: second chances.

Beyond embracing some of the hopes and fears that kids can relate to, Eraser has appealing artwork, a spirited character, and a story line filled with feeling and peppered with clever puns. It’s a wonderful read, and I’m so proud to introduce you to it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cute Picture Book that Teaches about the Power of Teamwork!
By Kristin B. on August 1, 2018
I'm starting off this review by stating that I absolutely LOVE books. My five-and-a-half year old twins love books as well and we read together every single day, which has proven to be very beneficial to them in school. We read a lot of picture books and I was excited to see a children's picture book in this month's First Reads selections. I eagerly downloaded it and read it to my twins over breakfast.

Eraser by Anna Kang is a cute story about the importance of teamwork and how we all need each other, which are some very important lessons kids can learn from at a young age. As we all know, erasers mostly clean up mistakes and the main character in this book, Eraser, feels left out because she never gets to create anything. After some misunderstandings and help from friends, Eraser learns that she is very important and she does more than just clean up messes.

This book is considered a picture book and is 40 pages long. There are adorable, colorful illustrations that kids and parents can enjoy. As the new school year approaches, I found this book to be a really cute way for my kids to think about their school supplies and what they can do. With some help from parents, kids will understand some of the funny references made about the characters. I feel this book is good for ages four to seven and children younger and older may also enjoy it.

We loaded this book onto my kids' Kindle Fires and it works perfectly. I also used the Kindle app on my Android phone and it works great there as well.

Overall, we enjoyed this book and I'm sure we will read it again. I really liked the lessons on teamwork and how we all are important!
