Quite possibly the finest color book out there
on May 26, 2005
Laura Vaccaro Seeger's "Lemons Are Not Red" is not only a work of art, but a joy for parents, educators, and young children alike. Each of the richly colored paintings are worthy of framing, as they are as beautiful as they are functional. The text invites readers to play, argue, and laugh as they explore what's NOT red, orange, gray, etc. and discuss what IS! The pages are thick and durable and will stand up to many years of enjoyment. Like Seeger's previous work, "The Hidden Alphabet", this is an ingenious creation with a complete understanding of the way a child's mind works and an incredibly successful attempt at expanding their imaginations and the way they view the world. Brilliant, absolutely brilliant.
