This cute picture book is all about color. As you read this book to your youngest they learn about the color of certain animals. Then they learn what happens when two colors are blended together. They also learn the importance of sharing and celebrating differences. Cute, simple and educational. ( )

A wonderful book to read to a child before they begin their first day of school, or to read to a class on their first day of school. It shows them that no matter what their differences they are all better together. Plus, you get the added bonus of teaching children about mixing colors. A win, win if you ask me. ( )

A cute book for kids who are learning their colors. :) I enjoyed the illustrations a lot, but felt it was a bit long in some spots.

A cute story that will help form skills for early and young readers. The sentence structures are short to allow new readers to sound out the words and sentences. Non complex words help form reading proficiency as well. Sketchbook type illustrations are creative and fun too.

The green frog is preparing for her first day of school, but she is nervous, wondering what she will learn. Next, it’s time for the black ant. Finally, he packs his lunch and gets ready to go to school. Similarly, a spider, a squirrel, a ladybug, a butterfly, and many others prepare for their first day of school. Mr.Mole, their teacher, gives them a warm welcome and asks them to he asks everyone to paint something. Did they all paint, and what happened afterward?

We picked this book for its cover. The storyline talks about how many nervous students prepare for their first day of school and how they become friends by the end of the group activity and ease the tensions. The illustrations are dazzling and work really well with the storyline.

A Colorful Beginning by Raven Howell is a brightly illustrated book that will appeal to those looking to start their first day of school. ( )
