Book Review and Giveaway: Colors of Me. Ends Dec 19th
Colors of Me by Brynne Barnes and illustrated by Annika M. Nelson
Intriguing collage illustrations frame this playful rhyme told through the eyes of a curious, creative young child who determines the whole world is full of color. Would I climb a tree striped orange and blue? Does the rain have a color when it makes a puddle? If flowers had no color, would they smell as sweet? The child comes to realize and appreciate a world filled with all colors that paint the earth and sky–and decides she’d like to be them all.
My Review: A playful rhyme book celebrating the colors of the world by questioning whether the rain has a color to does the grass knows if it’s green? And if the rain doesn’t think of our colors when it falls on our head then why do we have questions about race, ethnicity and diversity? Does a child know which color is important? NO!
Like the author mentioned, “The whole world is full of colors just like you and me.” Illustrator Annika Nelson used bold colors to bring this book to life. I highly recommend this book for classroom teaching.
