Red's factory-applied label clearly says that he is red, but despite the best efforts of his teacher, fellow crayons and art supplies, and family members, he cannot seem to do anything right until a new friend offers a fresh perspective.

AHHHHHHHH!!! How perfect is this book? I can clearly see what all the fuss is about. You may be born with a label, but all that matters is to be who you are, not who the label is. LOVE everything about this. ( )

For some reason this book isn't quite resonating with me as hard as it's supposed to? I'm probably overthinking it because I'm trying to replace the words "red" and "blue" with "male" and "female" and the whole thing is really falling flat for me. In reading reviews I can see that other people are seeing it as a specific trans* narrative instead of a general be-yourself narrative but in that case it feels really gender role-y to me.

Everyone thinks you're a boy (red) because you look like a boy (red)! But you can't do any of these boy (red) things so you must be broken. In crayon-world it makes sense, but in human world, it feels like they're all saying that if you look like a boy, you should be able to do certain things, and if you can't do them, you're not being "boy" well enough. Which is true, there are lots of things we expect boys to be able to do and if they don't do them, we make fun of them or make them feel bad for not being able to do them. But then the end of the book feels like all the crayons are saying, oh, you're actually a girl (blue)! Of course, now it all makes sense why you couldn't do any of those boy things, because girls can't do those things. But you can do girl things, because you're a girl, so our rigid ideas of what genders are for remain uncontested.

Anyway if I don't think about it too hard I still like the book because it's about a crayon who was sad and then figured out how to be happy and all the crayons in his community supported him, and if I think of it as a general story of identity and acceptance it's cool, but as a trans* narrative it makes me uneasy. Because it's about someone's label not matching their physical appearance and the community being weirded out by that. ( )

I especially liked how one of the art supplies representing medical professionals admits being wrong in their diagnosis. ( )

Red is red, that is it. But Red does not feel like Red and finds it difficult to draw Red things. One day Purple asks Red to draw something blue and at first Red doubts itself but then draws the most beautiful blue picture with ease. Despite the label Red is given, Red discovers that it is really Blue. This book reminded me of George but meant more for a younger audience. It touches on struggling with one's identity and trying to live up to what you are told to be or who you are told you are. It shows that being true to oneself and living honestly and true to who you are is the best way to live. I loved this book. The illustrations and message are beautiful, and I think the message is conveyed perfectly for young students. ( )

This is a book about self-identity. Red is struggling all the time to do what everyone expects him to be able to do: to draw things that were red! He could not figure out why he couldn't do it, and he was getting so frustrated, as was everyone around him. One day, Purple asks if Red can draw a blue ocean for her purple boat; he does not think he'll be able to, but she asks him to try anyone. To his surprise, drawing the blue ocean was easy. He kept drawing and drawing different blue things, and they realized that Red was really Blue! He is so relieved to figure out who he is and what he is good at. This story simplifies the idea of self-concept and identity crises for kids in a simple metaphor (a mislabeled crayon). I absolutely love the simple illustrations that look like doodles from a child! I think that this book is a great way to open up a conversation with kids about identity. ( )
