Wanted to love this book. A kind of concept book with a message, "Who you are is okay" or "Everyone is an individual." Can be used as a color primer.

Would have loved to see the concept of black and white animals with limited colors and patterns pushed further.

Cute and creative, rhyming picture book featuring black and white animals that spice up their lives by accessorizing with color. Great way to introduce colors to younger kids. Includes not only colors of the rainbow but also pink, brown, lavender, aqua, and maroon.
