Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
Once you open this book, one of ten titles in the "Colors" series, you leave behind the initial reaction that perhaps it is expressly written for little girls. The author addresses the broad variety of "pinks" in a child's world—from a ballerina's tutu to bubblegum to everybody's tongue. This initial introduction to expository text format (non-fiction) stands out as one of the best. With a "mini" table of contents, glossary plus page numbers and extension activity lists, it introduces these elements more commonly seen in non-fiction books for older readers while keeping them simple enough not to overwhelm. It offers natural opportunities to initiate discussions and the short extension activity at the back of the book is a built-in art lesson with an exploration into how new colors are made. Created for both read-aloud experiences with pre-readers and exploration by those beginning to acquire independent reading skills, this book is a delight to the senses and a quick read. Its appeal is strong enough to identify this as reading materials for a child's "I can reach" collection, best kept on a low shelf, ready for little hands to explore anytime. 2005, Capstone Press, Ages 4 to 7.
