Adam Lehrhaupt tells a tale of the power of color in this exploration of creativity that is sure to inspire readers and budding artists!

Isn't it fun to color?
Every color has a feeling,
just like we do.
Yellow makes us feel happy.
Dark blue can make us feel sad.
Red can seem angry.
Black can look scary.
What color do you feel like today?

Booklist Review: "A young boy recognizes that he can't draw. Some people are really good at drawing, But my puppies look like mush. My cars look like lumps. Yet he can still create art in his own way. When I color, I can express myself without drawing anything. Lehrhaupt's spare text tells of one child's artistic expression with colors, and Sala's exuberant illustrations joyfully prove the point. Sala combines watercolors, colored pencils, and crayons of all colors to produce appealing, childlike illustrations. The end result is a delightful array of blobs and squiggly and jagged lines set to angry reds, sad blues, happy yellows, calming purples, and excited oranges, which easily communicate those feelings. When asked to draw a portrait, the boy instead produces a colorful masterpiece of all the swatches jumbled together, since he is never just one color, after all. This attractive, approachable book offers a variety of teachable themes, including basic color theory, self-expression and emotional vocabulary, and confidence, and would be a great pick for an art-themed storytime.--Lock, Anita Copyright 2017 Booklist"
