In this happy picture book, Madison loves pink to the limit!
Madison loves pink. In fact, “pink” was her very first word, so it was no surprise to anyone when she grew up to embrace pink with a passion: her room, her clothes, even the mashed potatoes at her birthday dinner were all pink, pink, pink.
But then Madison realizes that she has taken her love for pink a bit too far. What about her favorite brown bear, her red truck, her green balloon? Pink is great—it really is—but it needs the other colors to shine, and so does Madison!
With simple, relatable text and playful illustrations, this kindly cautionary tale will charm enthusiasts of all colors of the rainbow.

Cute, but a couple shades away from excellent. The text is longer than it needs to be and gets a little bogged down. Still, it's a fun premise and decent read, and the shades of pink are wonderful.
This book has developed a wonderful character in which the little girl loves the color pink and becomes obsessed. It is very easy to relate to this character making it a delightful realistic fiction story.Media: Ink and acrylicUse: This book could be used to dicuss the students' favorite colors, or as a discussion of when is something to much.
