I downloaded this book through the Amazon First Reads Program for our daughter. We sat down and read the book together. She complained that the print in the Kindle edition is too small on my 7" screen. Perhaps this book would look much b ...more
I went through a gray wardrobe phase. It fell between orchid and butter yellow. It lasted several years, long enough to wear out two pairs of gray zipper-pocket jeans. I still have my gray argyle sweater, a Jones of New York gray wool peacoat, and my warm and fancy furry gray Sorel boots. It wasn’t a sad phase, this gray wardrobe phase, and I didn’t just wear gray in winter. My gray-, white-, and butter-yellow swimsuit lead me on to chic ...more
My little kid panelists (2 to 5) found the illustrations charming but the text had to be simplified for their comprehension.
The book is short, and we will try it again in about a year to see if the result is different. Ward wants to pack in some terms that may need to be skipped for younger readers. Still, this is a charming effort to enlighte ...more
I saw some people writing that this is the best children's book they've ever read, and I was pleasantly surprised to see the same. Gray is left out and just wants to color with his friends, but when he tries to color his own story and show them how awesome gray is, they start to see things differently. What a great reminder that there is room for all of the colors in any story. It's a great little book!
As much as this book can educates kids about colours and the differences between them all (the bit about the complimentary blue and orange made me laugh!) It's also a good laugh throughout.
I thought when reading it that the end of the story was that double spread where the hippo says: I'm hungry. The wolf adds: me too! And the cat is like 🥺?
Makes me laugh so much. Well done Lindsay!
In reading it , I found myself to be just like those other colors but will try to use gray more often.
This book says it's about gray, but it veers quickly away from the charming premise into psychobabble and a reversal of the premise. If you want abook about valuing the unnoticed potential of individuals who get overlooked, look elsewhere. Thus isn't that book. There's very little in this book about gray and it's value.
Amazing children's book. Witty and fun for younger children but older ones may get a kick out of it too.
This author is an amazing lady. She went to Maple Leaf school a couple of years ago and spent a couple of hours reading and signing free books to give to children there. Plus she also demonstrated her awesome illustrating talents too!
She is a just amazing!
Was a nice change to have a free children's book. Not my favourite children story book but would kill 5 mins once or twice with my son but don't feel he'd be fussed to want to read the story again as not an awful lot hwpppend but I like the idea
My favorite color is Gray so I was excited to read this book about the color gray. It doesn't have to be a gloomy or dismal color. It can be just as great as the other colors! Great book about being inclusive.
