Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzanna E. Henshon
Six-time Grammy winner Cece Winans, Keith Thomas, and Alvin Love III have written a book that sings to children from all different backgrounds. We are all unique with talents and abilities to contribute to the world. We are all trying to reach our potential and to make a positive difference in the lives of family and friends. Children will enjoy the lively illustrations by Melodee Strong, and these paintings bring Colorful World to life in a visual sense. The sweeping landscape of the book is a wonderful celebration of cultural diversity and of being unique and special in your own way. Parents and children will enjoy reading Colorful World together, and the illustrations add a delightful touch; the accompanying CD transforms this book into a musical experience that will enrich the experience of any listener and budding musician.

K-Gr 4- Through this illustrated version of her upbeat song, Winans encourages youngsters to recognize their unique talents and abilities. In two different scenes, children are exposed to unpleasant experiences and respond with positive actions. Readers are reminded that what is in the heart matters most of all. As the song notes, "we have millions of children with possibilities.... What makes this world a better place is that we are not all the same." Delightful stylized cartoon images of children of color depict the characters' facial expressions, dilemmas, and their actions. The layout is straightforward and the text flows across bold, beautiful spreads. A CD is included and the original lyrics are printed on the last page. The combination of book and song would be useful to build bridges among cultures.-Margaret R. Tassia, Millersville University, PA
