    Great book for Kids on Colors and super awesome Illustrations

    The Colors of Myself by Karen Hutchins Pirnot
    Illustrated by Sameon Clay Klanot

    Wow, I am in awe of the painting in this book by four year old Sam! They are breath-taking for a child that young to draw. I would love to have the one on page 7 framed! It is beautiful! Ok that said, this book is about for year old Sam using colors to identify himself and his feelings. With each color he has a different feeling about himself. As Sam explained his feeling of each painting to the author, she puts those feelings to the words in this book.

    I love to see the creative minds of children and Sam is showing readers a part of his four year old creative mind. What a wonderful way he used to express himself in this precious book, and having his feeling in print will encourage other young readers to do the same. The book is beautiful inside and out. The warm inviting colors of the book cover will sure capture the young reader's attention.

    This book is a must for public, school and personal libraries everywhere! And purchase from the author for an autograph copy! Here is the website


    I want to thank the author Karen Hutchins Pirnot for providing a copy of this book for me to review. I was not expected or required to write a positive review. The opinions in this review are mine alone.

    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.
