Blue’s my favourite colour!
It really is the best.
I love my lucky socks.
Blue’s better than the rest.
What’s your favourite colour? When a teacher asks her students this question, one little girl just can’t decide! Enter her vibrant imagination as she considers every colour and all the reasons that she loves the whole rainbow. Orange glows through autumn leaves, but pink is the colour of sunsets and cotton candy! And green shines all around the garden—how will she ever choose just one favourite colour?
In her debut picture book, author Lindsay Ruck joins artist Bryanna Chapeskie to create a stunning poem that illustrates why being unique is always something to celebrate.

My Favourite Colour is a fun trip through the different colours of the rainbow (and more!). With delightful illustrations and fun rhymes, we learn to appreciate something different about each color. Of course, in the end, all of the colours are wonderful, and we can appreciate them all for the beauty they bring. This is a wonderful way to show kids positivity and inclusivity, and to see that even though we may be different from each other, we all bring beauty to the world in different ways. Fun book with a wonderful message!
Thanks Netgalley and the publisher for the opportunity to review this advanced review copy (ARC) in exchange for my honest review on the book!
This was so lovely! I adored the writing and the illustrations and it was easy to read. It had a lovely flow to it and I could imagine reading it aloud to a nursery/reception class. My only criticism is that it is clearly a book for teaching children colours and it's not hugely clear on each page what that colour looks like (other than in the word where the colour is mentioned) as there are other colours used in the illustrations. It would be useful to have a blob of the colour on each page or a page at the end where all the colours are clearly labelled to make it clear!
Such a cute story with great illustrations!! I thought it was just the sweetest story. An easy, quick read with big impact!
This is a sweet story about favorite colors. I love the illustrations and how they focus on the favorite color. The conclusion is great and a subtle nod to how we are different colors and we are all great too, but it doesn't beat you over the head. Kids who are attracted to bright colored books are sure to pick it up.
