Mixed: a Colorful Story
Mixed: A Colorful Story - Arree Chung
What a fantastic simple book with a powerful message. It made me think,” why hasn’t someone written this book before?” I absolutely love this book and with the message it brings, I wish more people would read it but with it being a children’s picture book, I know its audience will be limited.
 
The individuals in this story are small-colored faces with legs and arms. The story begins with the three primary colors living peacefully together in one town: the reds, the blues and the yellows. Suddenly, one of the primary colors decides that their color is superior than any other colors and they proclaim this to the town. This message suddenly causes a commotion among the colors, and the town is suddenly divided by their color.
 
Days pass and then a yellow notices a blue sitting on a bench and the dividing line between the colors begins to get fuzzy. The two of them fall in love and they have their special day as they make their commitment to each other. Their lives are changed forever when these two create a new color in town. As the families grow, the colors mixed, and the possibilities were endless as the dividing lines now seems to have vanished away.
 
What a fun, entertaining book. I loved the illustrations as the colored faces lit up the black and white backgrounds. You really need to check out this book! I highly recommend it, it’s a keeper. I really need to get a copy of this book, when I finally return this book to the library.

Stuck
By Oliver Jeffers - Stuck - Oliver Jeffers

I LOVE OLIVER JEFFERS. His texts are jubilant and silly. The images are beautifully illustrated, and will have the reader flipping through in no time! Stuck tells us the story of Floyd. Poor Floyd got his kite stuck in a tree, and he can't get it down. He begins to throw all kinds of things at the tree in hopes of knocking it down. This book would be perfect for identifying problems and solutions. Because Jeffers has quite an extensive list of books under his belt, teachers could use him for an author study. Accompany with a read a loud by the author himself!

They All Saw A Cat
They All Saw a Cat - Brendan Wenzel

This text is definitely a short read, but I think teachers can incorporate it into any classroom! The text is accompanied by gorgeous illustrations that fill the entire page. These illustrations were created with various tools, so the reader is constantly engaged. I think it would be fun to collaborate with the art teacher while studying this text. The students could definitely write about the different perspectives seen throughout the book. This text could also overlap into science! Students could study animal eyesight, and use the text to write about what animals might see.

The Day the Crayons Quit
The Day the Crayons Quit - Drew Daywalt,Oliver Jeffers

Who doesn't love this fun story? This silly tale depicts the struggles faced by a box a crayons that belong to Duncan. I love to read this aloud to young readers. There are many opportunities to add ridiculous voices and accents that little minds love. This book could be used in math to graph which colors students like to color with the most. I would also consider using this text for Science. It would be interesting to study how long it takes for crayons to wear down, or what happens when different amounts of pressure is applied. I would even suggest using this book to accompany a class art project! I would allow students to glue crayons to a canvas and use a blowdryer to melt them. Imagine how proud they would be if you displayed this work in the classroom!
