Such a sweet book! I loved that it showed the beauty in cooperation as well as the reality that people have bad days and hopefully we can forgive them and not hold grudges. There is additional information located in the back for parents/adults. I will certainly gift this to others! Thank you, APA and NetGalley!
As it was probably intended, the cover for this book caught my eye. Those colors look adorable. But I love the way that the message comes across to young readers in the story. Red is busy, thank you, “taking his job seriously” because who wants to fail their hue? Not me. He doesn’t have time to be interrupted by Yellow admiring his roses. Alas Red just doesn’t give enough priority to being a primary color and mixing with Yellow and Blue to color pumpkins. But left all alone and lonely, he realizes what he’s missing. Thank goodness someone is there to nudge him into saying sorry and get him back with his friends to make one of the wonders of the world: a sunset. B+
A very nice book about primary colours and needing to work together to create other colours. It was also about being kind, and having friends, and forgiveness. I would put this in my school library collection as it would be a good conversation starter. Thanks to NetGalley and publisher for the arc.
Great story that shows children how working together is better than just doing everything on your own and how the world looks better when you do work together.
I received this book for free from Netgalley in exchange for an honest review. This book was interesting and the illustrations really were lovely. The color Red is so focused on his work that he forgets that part of his daily obligations include working with others. He rediscovers the beautiful things he cannot do alone. This is a great book about teamwork and self-reflection. I felt that my son was at an ideal age to get the most ut of it and I was right. Great for families and classrooms. I would recommend this book.
Red Yellow Blue is a gorgeously illustrated children's picture book that shares the important lesson of how powerful it can be to work together. I loved that it was able to really walk the reader through the experience and how you can feel good about the things you are able to do on our own while also recognizing the importance of collaborating with others. I read this with our 6-year-old and he enjoyed the detailed narrative and it was a great conversation starter about kindness and teamwork.
A book not just about colours but about friendship, being kind to one another and forgiveness. This book was super cute and is a great introduction to primary colours and making new colours. It also offers a great introduction to forgiveness and friendship. My 4 year old really enjoyed this book and all the different images on each page. A great read for preschoolers and lower elementary grades
Great book to teach children about primary colors and how they work together to make our world a more beautiful and colorful place. The illustrations are cute and the story is both fun and educational.
I received a free ARC from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I thought this book was completely adorable. It taught about the importance of primary colors, creating secondary colors, and working together. It was a great concept. The pictures were eye-catching and the text wasn't too advanced for kids to understand. I think this would be a great learning tool for young artists.
