    One thought on “Colors”

    1. Cool poems about different colors. I really enjoyed reading this with my older son when he was in preschool (and early elementary).

    2. This book is unlike anything I have ever read! I absolutely love the illustrations! The illustrations are completely unique, they seem pop right off the page! This book is amazing not only because of the pictures, but the words too. The words really liven the book. Each page talks about a different color, and there is a poem to match it. The colors on the pages are so vibrant. Most of the poems are talking about the color spectrum. Each poem is unique to every color. Which is one of the reasons [...]

    3. I love the “Word Jazz” album so I was hopeful this book would capture that soothing feeling of Nordine’s vocals, but the drawings seemed more menacing. It’s definitely a unique interpretation, but there was a disconnect betwen the pictures and the music in my mind as I read the book. My kids are older now so perhaps I would like it more based on what their reactions may have been if I had read it to them then.

    4. This book was wayyy to confusing to read in terms of vocabulary, concepts of print, and comprehension. The illustrations are pretty cool though. They don't relate to the text too too well.

    5. This book was interesting to me because it was written in poem form and I think it is very catchy and children anywhere from kindergarten-4th grade could enjoy this. Very easy read

    6. I remember when I first heard Ken Nordine's Colors, and I loved it. Now to have it in a children's book form is fantastic. So fun!
