School Library Journal - School Library JournalPreS-Gr 2-Each of these titles displays items of a particular color, introduces its various shades, and describes how to mix it with other primary hues to make secondary colors. The appealing photos show children of various ethnic backgrounds doing art projects and creating healthy food concoctions in the appropriate hue. Parker uses simple vocabulary and sentence structure to explain concepts. The texts, which are sometimes contained within pertinent shapes, are scattered through each brightly colored spread, lending interest to the design. Each page has a lively, busy feel that will make youngsters want to experiment with paints for themselves. Although these books would be more functional if they were combined into one volume, they are serviceable within their limitations. Art and classroom teachers might find them useful.-Lynda Ritterman, Atco Elementary School, Waterford, NJ Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
