Sky Color is a beautiful story with an even more beautiful message. The pictures are wonderfully depicted. Encourages students to use their critical thinking skills, imagination and be creative. I would recommend this story. ( )

Because the sky is frequently some sort of blue we tend to generalize that to "the sky is blue." For kids creating art, the step from generic blue sky to specific colors of the sky at individual times can be tough. Reynolds manages to explain the idea of specifics in a way that's very easy for young children to grasp. The art is cute and engaging, the concept, as he puts it, is simple and concrete. The result is awesome, whether or not one is really interested in the ideas of creating art.
