Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Leah Hanson
From ketchup on your fries to silly pink tutus, colors are everywhere around us! This book's clever, catchy rhymes will make you laugh, while the quirky drawings and collages will capture your imagination. In her first foray into the world of children's picture books, New York Times illustrator Laurie Rosenwald deftly brings together the rhythm and cadence of jump rope rhymes with imaginative child-like line drawings as a means of exploring color. Each color of the rainbow gets several pages, and an explosion of different sized fonts and textures provides much to look at. Adults will love reading the book again and again because of the humor; children will love poring over the illustrations. Paired with Ellen Stoll Walsh's Mouse Paint or Leo Lionni's Little Blue and Little Yellow, this is an excellent way to talk about colors, color-mixing, and even the emotions colors can evoke. Readers will find something new every time they turn the page! Reviewer: Leah Hanson
Kirkus Reviews
"Purple is a funny word. / rhymes with nothing. / sounds absurd! / Purple grapes / make purple gum. / my friend Violet gave me some!" Rosenwald plasters her pages with simple cut-paper shapes, wild squiggles of crayon and paint, torn photos, pieces of cardboard and snatches of big, loud text for an eye-filling celebration of color guaranteed to kickstart a general rush for the art supplies. Presenting a succession of concepts along with her colors, she starts with spreads of solid reds, introduces shades of blue, green and yellow, moves on to mixing primaries, finishes up with black and white, then closes with an invitation to find even more hues. The instructional approach provides an alternative to Lois Ehlert's more abstract Color Zoo (1989), and makes this an ideal high-energy lead in to such elementary manuals as Dawn Sirett's My First Paint Book (1994).

    so unique! and so rich!

    This book evokes a time of artistry, poetry and whimsy that is lost in most of today's computer generated 'or at least computer influenced' world of image making. It is unencumbered from heavy handed-messaging leaving all the room in the world for true free expression... it let's kids be kids and grown ups be dazzled.
