This is a great children's book that shows a journey of friendship between blue and yellow. This book can be interrupted in many different ways that allow students to develop their own way of thinking. Overall it is a great book that will end with a great lesson.

'Little Blue and Little Yellow' is a simple and adorable story about friendship and diversity (and primary/secondary colors). The illustrations are just as simple yet powerful as the text and left me feeling warm and fuzzy inside. ( )

This book is very amusing. I found myslef actually chuckling at how adorable it is. It's a tale of two colors becoming best friends and actually mix into one color. Little Blue and Litlle Yellow could be a book an art teacher could use to show that colors can mix and create new colors, it could also be a book about friendship. ( )

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.
