Little Blue and Little Yellow is a book about two best friends who love doing things together. One day when they can't find each other, they both go on adventures to look for eachother. When they finally find eachother, they give each other a big hug. They hug so long that their colors mix and they become green. Their parents don't recognize them now that they're green. The two dots began to cry and eventually turn back to their original color. * GOOD READ ALOUD * Good for mixing colors and art projects

This simplicity in the illustrations is its greatest asset. Great book to use with primary grades, also to teach about primary colors.

This book is simple and great. Blue and yellow are two friends. One day they can't find each other. When the two colors are reunited they hug and become green. This book is good for when children are learning that their primary colors are combined to create new colors! ( )

I really enjoyed this book. I like the art work in it. It is so unique. I also like how each one of his stories there is a lesson to be learned in the end. ( )

This story is a great telling of friendship and can tell any age group the story of how to always be there for one another. I think that the big idea for this book is to tell children that keeping friendships with good people can make them feel amazing! I enjoyed the moment when Little Yellow and Little Blue hugged and noticed that they turned to green because their colors mixed. I think that this happens in every friendship. It takes a little from each side to keep a friendship going and blending ideas and opinions makes the friendship enjoyable and fun. Although the story was great and I loved reading it, I did not enjoy one part of it. When Little Yellow and Little Blue turn green from blending all the way with one another, their parents don't recognize them and don't allow then inside the house. I was not sure how to feel about this at first, but then when I thought about it more I realized that not every children's book should be sappy and happy. Children should be able to feel more emotions, other than happiness, when reading stories. Feeling upset for the little colors is okay and it allows children to tune into more emotions. ( )
