I have mixed feelings about this book. On one end I don't like how all the families are all one color. (Little blue having blue parents and yellow having yellow) And on the other, it makes sense when trying to teach children about colors, especially mixing them and what comes out of each mixture. If you take it for what it is, an art book, it is a very cute book and fun for young readers. ( )

This book can be used for diversity. Instead of using people this book uses colors.

This is a story of friendship between little blue and little yellow. It also teaches color concepts.

Torn paper illustrations tell a sweet story, with some anxious moments, that works on many levels for many different ages. The book was originally published in 1959; I read it to my children in the 1970s. ( )

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.
