Book Review for Huff & Puff and Pantone Colors

Huff and Puff by Claudia Rueda

About the Author: Claudia Rueda’s work was twice selected for the New York City Society of Illustrators Original Art Show and for the sixth 3×3 magazine Children’s Show. Her picture books have been published in the United States, Spain, and Mexico and have been translated into French, Danish, Portuguese, Korean, and Chinese. She lives in Miami.


About the Book: Play the part of the big bad wolf! Huff and Puff and blow down the houses of the Three Little Pigs in this interactive retelling.

My Review: We all have read the story of the Three Little Pigs and the Big Bad Wolf as a child. But author Claudia Rueda decided to put a new twist on the story allowing the reader to play the part of the big bad wolf. The funny thing about this story is that when the wolf blew down the houses of the first and second pigs, they had a bowl, two eggs and a mixing spoon. The last house had all three pigs with a cake and 3 candles in it.

My understanding of this story is that the pigs got fed up with the big bad wolf for always blowing down their house. So they decided to come up with a plan, a plan that involved becoming friends with the wolf. I let you find out what happened
Every child will enjoy reading this book. I highly recommend this book for classroom reading.

Pantone Colors

About the Author: Pantone revolutionized the graphic arts industry with the launch, in 1963, of the PANTONE MATCHING SYSTEM®, which enabled designers and printers to articulate and reproduce accurate color anywhere in the world. This system achieved global acceptance and quickly became the standard in color naming and matching. Today, Pantone serves not only as the premier color consultant and authority on trends but also as a consumer brand in apparel, housewares, accessories, arts and crafts, stationery and office supplies, home furnishings, electronics, and apps.


About the Book: This artful first colors book introduces children to 9 basic colors and 20 shades of each. Readers will immerse themselves in the concept that one color name actually refers to a variety of dark, light, and in-between tones. Young children will begin by simply naming the colors of the monochromatic images and will soon grow to select their favorite and least-favorite shades. Pantone: Colors is a visually pleasing way to expand the colors conversation and develop a child’s sense of visual discrimination.

My Review: This book teaches children about basic colors and shades. It takes one basic color Yellow and matches it with 20 shades like Taxicab Yellow, Lemon Yellow, Corn Yellow, School Bus Yellow and so on.  This is a great book not only for kids but for adults.
