Join Pintro the robot's journey as he learns how to create art!

Pintro is a robot who is practically perfect. He knows all there is to know about how to garden, how to bake, and especially everything about math. But the one thing Pintro does not know how to do? Make art! Whenever he tries, he just produces a perfect copy of the subject. While that's not a bad thing, he knows there's more to art than that. Can Pintro connect with his creativity and overcome his programming so he can finally paint the way he wants to?

Programmed to Paint has a great message directed toward preschoolers, but is helpful for any age, including adults!

Pintro is an adorable character, and reading along as he searched for his creativity was endearing and bittersweet, Often we see creativity smashed apart with the need to be "perfect," something everyone, even adults, deal with daily. The lesson about mistakes being how we learn and how we find our voice, and more importantly that it is okay to not be perfect, is lovely. It is appropriately conveyed for the target audience.

The illustrations are beautiful. They are vibrant and eye catching, each showcasing the emotion throughout the story expertly. I especially love how Pintro was expressive, considering he is a robot.

I highly recommend Programmed to Paint to readers of all ages. Classrooms, libraries, and even child therapist offices could benefit from having their book on their shelves!
