Overview

"I said RED!" says the little boy out playing on the farm with his older sister.
"You don't mean green? Look, here is green..." she teases. "A pickle green. A big frog green. A leaf, a tree, a green bean green."
But the boy means RED. "A cherry, berry, very red."
They romp through the pages, from "blue jean blue" to "yellow, bright and mellow..." and on to purples, brown, orange, pink and black...
But through it all, the boy said RED!
In this wonderfully unusual concept book, primary and secondary colors go first class!

A little girl and her brother introduce red, green, blue, yellow, and other colors as they wander about their farm.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Irresistible as a clever riddle, this splashy, cheerful concept book introduces primary colors to children with bright swathes of watercolor and a playful, lilting text. ``Who said red?'' asks a girl of her brother. ``You don't mean green? / Look, here is green . . ./a Pickle green, A big frog green, / A leaf, a tree, a green bean green.'' Narahashi ( I Have a Friend ) portrays the two children running through the lush country scenes that are green as spring. They see frogs leap from a pickle barrel, and a translucent collage made of a pale lunar moth and graceful leaves. The ``yellow'' is rich as butter, ``lemonade and daisy yellow,'' and delicate as the etched lace tablecloth that covers a cookie-filled table. ``Did you say red?'' asks the girl on the last page. ``Yes,'' answers the boy as he retrieves his red kite from a tree, ``I said red!'' Ages 3-6. (September)
School Library Journal
PreS-Gr 2 ``Who said red?'' asks the little girl of her younger brother. And despite her attempts to distract him with a litany of other colors, he insists that what he wants is definitely ``red.'' In the end the reason becomes clear as he rescues his ``cherry, berry, very red'' kite from the bush in which it is was caught. This concept book concentrates on the primary colors with just a brief mention of the secondary hues. Narahashi's soft watercolor illustrations depict views of farm life, focusing on animals, foods, and everyday people and objects when the text calls for specific color identification. Each overview spread includes the objects which will be seen in a close-up, so that children can sense the relationships of the specific to the general. Although the rhyming pattern may vary, the rhythm of the text is clear, making the book especially fine for preschool audiences. More advanced than Reiss' Colors (Bradbury, 1969) , yet not as sophisticated as Tison and Talus' The Adventures of the Three Colors (World, 1971; o.p.) , this book is sure make a splash in collections serving young children.

    Fantastic Visuals Help Teach Colors

    My two year-old son has been captivated by this book for the past year -- it has a wonderful way of being simultaneously quizzical/interactive and educational. The illustrations are gorgeous -- expansive and relaxing. We can look at several objects on each page and my son likes to point them out (a cat playing with a ball, a frog jumping into the pond, etc.). All the while, he is subtly learning about colors - the main theme of the book.
