In Red, Yellow, Blue (and a Dash of White, Too!), we are introduced to a little girl (who is unnamed) and a blue elephant named EleBooyah who are about to discover the wonder and fun of mixing colors. Each color gets three double-page spreads. There’s a surprising and surreal twist at the end when the little girl mixes all the colors together — be sure not to miss the fold-out!

The artwork is stunning. In my experience with children’s picture books, I really haven’t come across this kind of artis

Budding artists, get ready for a big splash of color coming your way! Join a little girl on a journey to discover a palette of mixing, mashing colors! With a splatter of paint off her brush she creates creatures that help her form more and more colors from the ones she already is using! First she splatters some blue to create a painting elephant named EleBooyah! Then her imagination grows wilder, as the red and blue the use, not only make the color purple, but form a purple octopus king! This ...more

A glorious experimentation in color, art, and joy! A little girl with a paintbrush discovers the joy of mixing colors. Blue and yellow make a green frog that jumps across the page and she continues using other colors to explore and create. The language is rhythmic and full of life. Recommended for ages 4 - 6.

I read this aloud to my Mock Caldecott 6th graders and we really liked the wild story and the art that matched.

One of the most beautifully illustrated picture books I have seen. I love children's books about mixing different colors. Featuring an adorable child of color himself who invokes a joy that you cannot help but share as you watch the adventure.

Wow! This book has color! A girl mixes paint- red, yellow, and blue, with a dash of white, too- to make other colors! She paints a blue elephant, a green frog, an orange basketball, a pink dinosaur, a purple octopus, and a greenish gray mud monster!

This book has a lot going on visually. Swirls of color cover each page. I like that there are also sounds to say aloud- Splish, Splash, Sploosh! And Swirl, Splatter, Splot! All the sounds of painting. The text rhymes in places and the color words (or

Gorgeous illustrations. The words- eh. But I don't think the words are the point :) Every part of me wants to give this book three stars (which says I liked it), but I cannot give it less than four! This is pretty huge for me because while I LOVE and appreciate beautiful illustrations, I am so moved by words and use words (and books) in my teaching, and really weigh heavily on words for my ratings. Still, I cannot give this less than four stars. The illustrations are that beautiful and inspiring ...more
