A little girl describes the emotions that other people around her associate with the colors (blue is sad, yellow is happy, red is angry, etc.). But then she shares her own associations with the colors—often the opposite of her family and friends. With its simple but evocative illustrations, this book is great for introducing the concept of the symbolism of color, as well as how different people can interpret the same things in very different ways. It would work very well for a storytime or lesson on the colors or diversity for young children up through first grade. Get the kids thinking: what does each color make you think of? What does blue feel like to you?
