The girl with the brown crayon

Paley relates a tale of farewell and self-discovery through the reflections and blossoming spirit of Reeny, a little girl with a fondness for the color brown and an astonishing sense of herself, as she begins her final year of teaching. As her crayoned figures flit around the classroom walls, Reeny declares, “This brown girl dancing is me.” We’re soon drawn into Reeny’s remarkable dance of self-discovery and celebration, as well as the literary turn the story takes when Reeny meets Leo Lionni, a writer of books and a storyteller. Paley, led by Reeny, takes us on a trip through Lionni’s universe of characters. As the children debate the strengths and shortcomings of Lionni’s creations, as well as his themes of self-definition and one’s position in the world, these characters come to dominate a whole year of discussion and debate.
The Girl with the Brown Crayon is a simple personal story about a teacher and a child that weaves race, identity, gender, and the fundamental human needs to build and belong together. Paley learns how the uncharted terrain unfolding before her and Reeny come to embody the very essence of school, a common center of reference, something to contemplate profoundly and draw on extravagantly, with her signature charm and wonder.
