Be a MakerBe a Maker by Katey Howes; illustrated by Elizabet Vukovic. 2019. Watercolor, gouache, colored pencils, and Adobe Photoshop. Published by Carolrhoda Books.

Brief summary:  A young girl wakes up wondering what she will make today using objects in her room until she goes outside in her spaceship and  befriends a boy who also starts to make things with her throughout the day.

Comments: The span of the book is one day with the two children making messes, noise, art, a spaceship, a friend, lunch and so on as the day moves.  What a great book to get young readers using their imaginations with materials around them.
