Opening: What is color? You can’t taste it. You can’t smell it. You can’t hear it. You can’t feel it. But you know it when you see it. You can see a color.Summary: (from my library catalog) Illustrated by the authors, this book provides an introduction to color through text and pictures of familiar objects and scenes. Included full-page and double-spread illustrations.
Why I like this book: The illustrations speak for themselves: fresh, inviting. Wow! Thanks to Jama Kim Rattigan, once again, for introducing me to a book to swoon over.
Resources/Activities: Walk around the house or classroom and place yellow objects in a bag or basket, then all the other colors mentioned in the book. If you have enough objects, create a rainbow!
