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. http://www.claudiarueda.com/
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 http://www.abramsbooks.com/Books/Huff_and_Puff-9781419701702.html
Every child will enjoy reading this book. I highly recommend this book for classroom reading.
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.

My name is Ella Johnson. I started Mymcbooks to promote reading. As a former teacher, I know that making basic education fundamentals interesting to children can be challenging. Education can be fun, exciting and captivating for children with the right learning tools. So my goal is to “make learning interesting and fun” for the children while they learn, by introducing them to fun books with colorful and captivating illustrations.
In 2009, I start the giveaway program giving away free school supplies at random to 2 winners each year. I also started a monthly free giveaways for books and gifts.
August 2010, I extended the free school supplies from 2 to 5 winners at random on my blog and also give away 20 bags full of school supplies to familes in need at Chick-fil-A in Brandon, Florida during their family nights. And in 2012, I beat my that number and gave away a lot of school supplies to needy families. Hopefully, I can continue to do this each year.
In 2011, I started writing reviews on children’s books then giving these books away free on Mymcbooks Blog. I increase the number of books we giveaway free to help support parent. My goal is to give away as many as I can each year. This is also a great way to introduce parents to new books.
Mymcbooks blog is always looking for other ways to give kids free books. So I started Mymcbooks Birthday Library http://mymcbooksbirthdaylibrary.wordpress.com/
My goal is to giveaway at least 300 books to children each year.
