Riassunto: A jazzy picture book explores the instinctive ways people react to colors by taking one band of the spectrum at a time and discussing the different expressions, emotions, and moods it evokes.
From School Library Journal:
PreSchool-Grade 2-- Double-page spreads present expressions and ideas associated with each of six colors as well as some concrete images. For example, red is for passion, roses, blood, and the Red Cross; green is for thumbs, envy, and concern about our planet. The overall design is well balanced, placing segments of the text near the appropriate attributes. These are depicted with lively, cartoon characters on watercolor backgrounds alternating to feature single aspects of each color: a Russian red sky at night; yellow daffodils; green rain forest; Picasso's blue period. They appear to be rendered in various techniques such as sponge, scratch, resist, collage, and watercolor. The book does have some minor flaws. The palette on which all of the colors accumulate at the top of the page shows royal blue becoming brown then purple in subsequent pictures. Also, Jenkins states that ``a bull gets angry when he sees a matador's red cape,'' but it's the motion that attracts the bull. She also says to ``avoid aerosol sprays (because they can hurt the sky).'' Since CFCs in aerosols were banned in 1978, this isn't true. However, aerosols can harm lungs. These are quibbles with an otherwise creative book that should serve as a catalyst for children, parents, and teachers to discuss other ideas and emotions associated with colors. --Cynthia K.
