This was a book that showed colors and the mixing of colors really well. I think this would be a good book for children who are in the process of learning colors.

I really liked Felix's cuddly little mouse, but all the way through the book, I kept thinking that Ellen Walsh already did this with "Mouse Paint." One of the main differences however, is that Walsh's book has words and Felix's book is wordless.
