    imagination and feelings

    Reviewed by Lisa Miller for Readers Favorite

    'The Colors of Myself' by Dr. Karen Hutchins Pirnot is written in poetry prose form of illustrations of a four-year-old child in which his illustrations are painted to represent the thoughts in his mind. The words relate to the child's feelings during the time he is painting; for example, "the shimmering yellow rays of the sun and I am happy and warm". As with poetry, this book is well written and graphically illustrated to let the mind create a variance of feelings towards the paintings of many colors. As for the illustrations of the paintings in the story, the child has used the colors to demonstrate feelings of self and the environment.

    I think this is a cute book of imagination and feelings. I enjoyed reading the analogy of the many colors in relation to the illustrator's feelings. As I read the prose poetry I would replace the child's feelings with my own feelings, for example, when I think of the different colors of nature. I imagined the colors of black and white, with the color of black representing fear as well as extinction and of course dark and death. Also, the color white can mean a peaceful death. I like the words that the author chose to relate to the feelings of the child. Such words have been used for the color green which represent the planting of garden seeds, the giant oak trees and the gentle spring breeze, which relate to the child's feelings of excitement and joy.
