For anyone who ever struggled to color the grass anything but green and the sun anything but yellow, this is a surprisingly beautiful book that shakes your assumptions about images.

Color all depends on how near or far we outside or in weeee look. Good book about color and looking a little deeper to see colors. How colors change in nature, etc.

White is for Blueberry is an excellent book to teach colors in a different way than basic relations to objects. This book with influence children to think about colors of objects that aren't of the average.

This book shows colors in nature. The writing is simple and the illustrations are vibrant and colorful. "Red is for leaves when they are blowing in an autumn breeze." The colors are shown in ways we wouldn't nomally look for or focus on. This is a great book for a younger child to introduce colors. The illustrations are great and the focus on the color, written in bold lettering in it's color, is a great addition to a simple subject.

I love that this book causes children to question things. They think that the statements are false when they actually are true. This causes a sense of wonder in the child and will have them asking many questions. The illustrations are wonderful and fit well for a young child. In class, you could bring in objects that can be two different colors at different stages in their lives. You can have the children guess what the objects original color was.

New way to look at colors- Green is for turnips-when you look at the leaves.

An inspired an unexpected book! When I turned to the first page I thought "really, how is PINK for CROW?", and was happily surprised by the baby crows on the next page. I think this could be an excellent book to teach plot predicting with younger students, or just guessing. The acrylic illustrations have a nice saturation to them that brings out the colors the book focuses on. A great way to look at color.

I love this simple, yet surprising book! It takes a look at colors in nature a way that none of us do. For example: Pink is for crow . . . when it has just hatched from its egg. The text is so thought-provoking and would a wonderful place to challenge some higher-level thinking and discussions for upper grade elementary and middle school students. The illustrations are simple, soft and really appealing. I will definitely use this book in my classroom!
