There is one drawback: paint ends up all over my walls, towels, clothing, etc. It's washable and non-toxic so I don't mind as long as we facepaint in moderation (aka: I hide the book frequently). Since we usually paint superhero masks around the eyes, I was thrilled to do something different, a tiger. Here is my animal-loving child:
