In between two mountains sits a school 'that has almost nothing'. On this particular day the kids take their crayons and paper and head outside to explore, with a dog and three curious chickens in tow. Along the way, with the encouragement of their teacher, they observe some very interesting creatures (spoil alert: dinosaurs!!) hiding in the trees, acting like rocks, and pretending to be storm clouds. This simple gem is a tribute to the power of the imagination, the resonance of beloved teachers, and the pure exhilaration of tramping solely for curiosity's sake.

— Jane

Let's all draw dinosaurs ... outdoors

In this remarkable picture book, a group of students spend an unforgettable day drawing dinosaurs outside with their extraordinary teacher.

Maybe your school has a playground, gym, computers, and a library. But at this school in a faraway mountain range, things are a little different. There's a blackboard, some chairs ... and not much else. But with the help of an extraordinary teacher and a little imagination, anything is possible

The students in this spirited picture book spend their days drawing dinosaurs outdoors. They draw astounding, spectacular creatures that come to life before their eyes, and turn their school into a wondrous place, where any child would want to go and learn.

Drawing Outdoors celebrates the amazing impact of teachers, and the wonderful worlds kids can create while drawing. A perfect gift for a beloved teacher, kids who love dinosaurs, and aspiring artists
