Absolutely stunning. I LOVE this book!

This book's been getting rave after rave. I liked it, but I didn't think it was a revelation. Plus, I put it prominently on display at my library and it's been sitting there for four days. Maybe my patrons are just not that into the color green.

Can I say I love cut out holes in picture books? Can I say I'm not really sure what cut-out holes are technically called? Die-cut? I must have missed that day in my Children's Materials class.

The point is this book is great and it has cut out holes. It's informational, but instead of just a bunch of discrete facts, Seeger cleverly brings things full circle and, whoah, this picture book just got deep, man!

What I love about wordless (or nearly wordless) books is the depth of emotion that they convey. Just like Aaron Becker's "Journey" trilogy, Laura Vaccaro Seeger does the same with her color trilogy. She says
"I believe that readers should make their own connections with characters in books, but in my mind, the boy we watched grow up in "Blue" is the father of the little girl we see at the end of "Green." And a few years late, that little girl plays a pivotal role in "Red.""

That is the type of storytelling that I am here for!… (mais)
