Well-loved for her books for young children, Margaret Wise Brown excels in bringing attention to the smallest details of a child's world. Here she introduces the concept of color to children with a wonderfully playful, lyrical text. Loretta Krupinski's jewel-toned palette, charming characters, and plentiful details perfectly complement the text.

Books that teach colors are great, but this one is lacking. "Red as red. . . Purple as a purple balloon." This literally tells me nothing. Also, in the illustrations, the colors that are being discussed are not showcased enough. Sure, there is blue on the blue page and red on the red page, but those should be the first things I notice, and it just wasn't that obvious.

"My World of Color" by Margaret Wise Brown is a great poetry book for children learning colors.

Not only does this book keep children peeled to the pages of colorful illustrations describing and show multiple examples of colors but it also shows them how that world is spelled and how it is put into our world. This picture book will give children the beginning knowledge of colors so they are able to look around their own world and pick out the many colors they see.

The plot is a straight plot wit

This book is all about different colors. It describes what objects or things have a certain color on them. Each page has a new color on it. It starts out with the color blue on a door and also end with the color blue on the door. It goes through the main colors and describes each one.

This book is great for a young child to have read to them. On each page it has a new color and pictures with that color on it to help describe the color. It is a very good visual learning book for a child trying to

This book is a story that ties in colors with representation. There is no plot, but each page brings new representation of a color. The reader will be left with a sense of understanding each object that represents a color.

Margaret Wise Brown presents figurative language in a poetic way throughout the book with a rhyming scheme that is continuous on each page. The illustrations represent the text written giving a visual to the reader to understand what the text is saying. The straight line plot h

A very good subject story about colors. Different colors of red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple,gray, black, pink, brown, and white were described with examples. The book is also good for a related hands on activites afterwards. Check beforehand to make sure that all of the colors mentioned are available in activity choice. Good for older preschool & kindergarten kids.

My 2 1/2 y/o old son liked this book a lot more than I did. It goes through all of the colors with a little rhyme (I guess you could call it) for each. I wasn't that excited by the illustrations or the rhyme, but he's asked for it several times, so it must be appealing to a toddler.

One of my favorite books to use with my littles when I review colors with them.

The bright and glorious illustrations makes each color come alive.

No matter how many times I read this book, I find something new to look at, and admire!

It is a very simple story and honestly I would give it 3 stars, but L has loved this story since she got the book 9 years ago. Loves it... So we reread it often.

why did you chose these things??
also the end pages arent full of those colors, only partially. it would have been better if lots of the same color were used.

This is a book Nicole picked out and it worked well because the color and the word were present so she could read along with me and learn what the color words looked like. Pictures were fabulous.

Margaret Wise Brown wrote hundreds of books and stories during her life, but she is best known for Goodnight Moon and The Runaway Bunny. Even though she died nearly 60 years ago, her books still sell very well.

Margaret loved animals. Most of her books have animals as characters in the story. She liked to write books that had a rhythm to them. Sometimes she would put a hard word into the story or p
