Omar on IceBook - 1999
Omar loves drawing pictures and wishes he could be as good at it as his classmate Elsie. But his teacher, Ms. Fudge, can never figure out what Omar's pictures are- no matter how hard she tries.
When the whole class goes ice skating, however, Omar's true talent emerges. He shows Elsie how he can glide and whirl and spin.
After all, it's easy when you don't worry and just have fun. And the whole class discovers with Omar that there is more than one way to draw pictures.
