Pinkalicious is about a girl who loves the color pink, after eating too many pink cupcakes her skin actually starts to turn pink. She ends up having to eat a lot of green vegetables in order to turn back to normal color. I like this book because it is fun and allows me to use my imagination. As a fellow "pink" enthusiast I often wonder is too much of a good thing bad? This book will make children laugh and giggle while learning that it is possible to have too much of a good thing. I think this book would be suitable for 2-8 year olds. It is fun and girly so any young child who likes cupcakes or the color pink would appreciate it.

This book is about Pinkalicious who was teased for loving the color pink. The majority of the kids on the bus liked the color black. Pinkalicious started to feel lonely and sad. She changed her pinkish ways but this made her more unhappy. It all changed when she found a friend who enjoyed the color pink and didn't think it was a terrible color.
Personal reaction
Always be yourself at all times. Never allow anyone to change the way you think. When being bullied for the way you are or the way you think, the person trying to pressure you to change was never a friend or someone who cared about you.
Classroom extension ideas
1.Have a round table discussion on being bullied. Ask the students has anyone every bullied you or made you change the way you are or vice versa have they bullied anyone.
2.Get different colors paints and have the students see or guess what colors they would be if you added the colors together

This story is about a little girl living in a totally pink world. On a rainy day, her mother makes some cupcakes. Naturally, she wants pink cupcakes! After a warning from her mother that too many cupcakes will turn her pink, she continues to eat more and more of them. The next day, she wakes up pink! After a trip to the doctor, who's advice was to eat more greens, she returns home to eat another pink cupcake. This turns her an even darker shade of pink. Finally, after getting tired of new complexion, she eats all the greens she can stand and returns to normal. The author ends the story with a fun surprise for the brother!
Personal Reaction:
The old phrase "too much of a good thing can become a bad thing" is exactly what this story brought too mind. Even though I don't eat sweets, I can relate to this story in terms of me always wanting more and more hours at work. Eventually, burnout happens, and I'm ready to find that normal state again.
Extension Ideas:
1. Children can create their own story with their favorite color. In the story they can include their favorite color, favorite food, and something that is not their favorite to return them to "normal."
2. The students and teacher could create a chart that compares their favorite snack to a healthier alternative.
3. As a fun game to incorporate, you could play a version of Simon Says. In this game, have the tasks involve picking out correct colors and foods.

There is so much pink! Pink, pink, pink. More than anything, Pinkalicious loves pink, especially pink cupcakes. Her parents warn her not to eat too many of them, but when Pinkalicious does . . . she turns pink from eating too many pink cupcakes.

I liked "Pinkalicious" by author and illustrator Victoria Kann and author Elizabeth Kann. I liked the illustrators use of mixed media that built detail into places like Pink's Mothers kitchen and the vivid use of colors like and pinks and purples that emphasized the consequences of Pinks inability to control her impulses. I thought the story was clever and enjoyed the restatement of the Mother's cry of "you get what you get and you don't get upset" which seemed to emphasize the theme of the story that Pink's decisions lead to her getting exactly what she wants only to find that it may not be worth it. I liked that this was the big idea of this story, and that we see the consequences in comic and exaggerated outcomes. ( )

The "Pinkalicious" series is a great resource to teach colors and a strong message to stay true to yourself.
