Fun to read for both kids and adults and awesome message

I love books that have great messages without being preachy. This book was so much fun to read. I love the exercises at the end to help reinforce comprehension and create diagolue. The illustrations were amazing and so much fun. Now I want to go do some painting with my little one. I read the eBook but had to order the physical hardback. I collect books and this will be a great addition to our shelves along with the author's other book, I'm

Such a cute story!

As an art teacher I'm always looking for new books to add to my classroom. I love that this story covers not just art (with the primary and secondary colors) but also the concept of working together, something our students seem to struggle with (learning how to get along and share ideas). I also really enjoyed the rhyming too, the flow of it almost reminded me of Dr. Seuss.

Art teacher s dream

This is a simple yet adorable book that teaches primary colors and color mixing. I can’t wait to read this to my students and do a project based on these little splatters. I know my kids will be engaged with this story and they will be learning at the same time!!! This art teacher thanks you!!

Quick fun and catchy

I ABSOLUTELY LOVED it!! The rhyming, the illustrations everything is cute and engaging. Lots of rhyming words so on top of teaching teamwork, colors, etc you can also have students pick our the rhyming pair. Will definitely order a physical cover for my personal library

Teamwork Theme!

Splatter was a hit with my 6 year old! He loved helping read the rhyming words and enjoyed the beautiful artwork! The lessons in working as a team and creating artwork together was fantastic. He promptly wanted to paint splatters just like this book! Highly recommend and can’t wait to read it to my third graders next!

Great book about teamwork! Easy book to show what primary colors make and easy to transition into an art activity . I would recommend for teachers and parents.

Love how complex it was in its simplicity

I love that the characters learned to work together and the subtle teaching that takes place. I also love the list at the end that spells out how to have a discussion about the book.

This book is very cute. I love the way teamwork was incorporated. I would love to use this to talk about working in groups and helping each other. I had to turn my screen to sideways for the kindle version to view the book properly.
