Eraser is always cleaning up everyone elses mistakes. Except for Ruler and Pencil Sharpener, none of the other school supplies seem to appreciate her. They all love how sharp Pencil is and how Tape and Glue help everyone stick together. Eraser wants to create so that she can shine like the others. She decides to give it a try, but its not until the rubber meets the road that Eraser begins to understand a whole lot about herself.Inspired by a school essay their daughter Kate wrote in the third grade, the author and illustrator behind Theodor Seuss Geisel Awardwinner You Are (Not) Small have created a desktop drama about figuring out who you are, finding happiness, and the importance of second, third, and maybe even fourth chances....

Puns galore - very clever and very funny, especially for adults - I can't help but think this would have been stronger as a graphic novel. It's dialog heavy, with lots of characters. Compared to Kang's You Are (Not) Small, all the additional characters' comments and side stories are a lot to juggle and could prove distracting to young readers, especially without traditional narration. The illustrations are full of details, but manage to do a lot of the heavy lifting, story-wise.

Quick, fun, easy read with lovely illustrations and a great message.
The first part of the book sets up the story nicely, and I loved when Eraser ran away and Pencil had to learn the hard way how valuable Eraser was.
What didn’t work for me quite as well was Eraser’s discovery of her own worth. I wish we could have seen her realize her own worth and contribution through action, but instead, the part of the story with the First Drafts takes a “deus ex machina” approach and ham-handedly delivers TH ...more

This book was super cute I enjoyed the characters . Period we connected with each and every one of them my daughter and I thought it was a super cute book I suggest that anyone buy it and read it to their elementary age student children because it is so adorable the author did a great job it teaches you that in the race using your racer on your pencil you can do way more than you actually thought you could in a very cute way of saying It
This is a very fun children’s book. All the characters are from a creative arts desk. Each item has its own face and attitude. The pencil behaves as the most important item of the lot, and perhaps it is. It’s very bossy. The eraser is never invited to the creative idea meetings. This makes the eraser down and angry, and it leaves. Well, you’ll just have to read this charming book to discover the ending.
I took a star away as I thought the book is for younger children that are unable to do the ex ...more
Great illustrations and nice story
This is basically a story about how we take things and people for granted even though everyone and everything plays an important role. Very nicely done.
This book has a lot of good dad jokes. The illustrations sell it. It is a little cheesy in spots.
Eraser is irresistible
I deeply, deeply like Eraser. Without ever forgetting its primary audience (children 5-8, give or take a year), Eraser challenges the definition of making a mistake as a sign of ignorance, or as a reason to feel shame. Instead, Eraser shows that making mistakes and recognizing them as such builds the skills and insight essential to solving problems and achieving excellence. Eraser's narrative is driven as much by Christopher Wayant's antic and action-packed illustrations a ...more
