I love, love, LOVE this book!! Red, Yellow, Blue (and a Dash of White, Too!) By Charles George Esperanza. I should say WE love, love, LOVE this children’s book!!
Red, Yellow, Blue (and a Dash of White, Too!), is centered about a little girl; since she doesn’t have a name in the book we subsititue Alice. You can imagine how excited Alice gets over that!! The little girl has a blue elephant named EleBooyah. Together they discover the wonderful and fun world of mixing colors.
The colors and the designs are vibrant and FUN!! Seriously, each page is a work of art. FUN mixed with swirls, swooshes, splats, swashes and splashes of color!! Mixing colors together on each and every page. At the end of the book all the colors are mixed together in one long fold out page. So be sure not to miss that fold-out!
Red, Yellow, Blue (and a Dash of White, Too!) is an adventure in color. This is an artistic, modern and fresh children’s book; full of movement and energy!! I’ve truly never seen anything like it; which is saying A LOT!! Alice’s library could rival our local county library! The kid loves to read and be read too.
We love all of the sing songy writing. Alice loves the fun sounds like splish, splash, sploosh, swoosh, swish, and swash!
Red, Yellow, Blue (and a Dash of White, Too!) is a fun book!! One that will be asked for over and over again!! It’ll inspire a few Picasso too I’m sure!
Splish! Splash! Sploosh! A little girl is about to discover the wonders of mixing colors. With the sound of paint splatter, a bright blue elephant named EleBooyah enters the scene. She wants to help paint, too, and pretty soon the girl and her elephant are playing with all the colors of the rainbow. What do blue and yellow make? A funky green frog! And red and blue? An enormous purple octopus king! What other creatures are waiting for the splatter of paint on a brush to join the raucous painting party?
Charles George Esperanza’s author/illustrator debut is a riot of color and magic. Esperanza’s rhythmic stanzas and vibrant illustrations tickle the imagination, and this is sure to become a staple color book for kids across the country.
Oh my gosh, not a single one!! This is an adorable book. Alice loves it! Requests it! Talks about it! Can’t get a better recommendation than that!!
