Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Irresistible as a clever riddle, this splashy, cheerful concept book introduces primary colors to children with bright swathes of watercolor and a playful, lilting text. "Who said red?" asks a girl of her brother. "You don't mean green? / Look, here is green . . ./a Pickle green, A big frog green, / A leaf, a tree, a green bean green." Narahashi ( I Have a Friend ) portrays the two children running through the lush country scenes that are green as spring. They see frogs leap from a pickle barrel, and a translucent collage made of a pale lunar moth and graceful leaves. The "yellow" is rich as butter, "lemonade and daisy yellow," and delicate as the etched lace tablecloth that covers a cookie-filled table. "Did you say red?" asks the girl on the last page. "Yes," answers the boy as he retrieves his red kite from a tree, "I said red!" Ages 3-6.

From School Library Journal

PreSchool-Grade 2 "Who said red?" asks the little girl of her younger brother. And despite her attempts to distract him with a litany of other colors, he insists that what he wants is definitely "red." In the end the reason becomes clear as he rescues his "cherry, berry, very red" kite from the bush in which it is was caught. This concept book concentrates on the primary colors with just a brief mention of the secondary hues. Narahashi's soft watercolor illustrations depict views of farm life, focusing on animals, foods, and everyday people and objects when the text calls for specific color identification. Each overview spread includes the objects which will be seen in a close-up, so that children can sense the relationships of the specific to the general. Although the rhyming pattern may vary, the rhythm of the text is clear, making the book especially fine for preschool audiences. More advanced than Reiss' Colors (Bradbury, 1969) , yet not as sophisticated as Tison and Talus' The Adventures of the Three Colors (World, 1971; o.p.) , this book is sure make a splash in collections serving young children.

Beautiful, soft illustrations and gentle text make this book a gem. A boy is looking for something, not green, not blue etc.

Format: Paperback
I saw this at my mother in law's house and I'm buying it now!
The pictures depict a little boy looking for his red kite. As he looks he sees all the colors in the rainbow in the world around him.
The illustrations are lovely. The text is a sing songy type of text that makes this book easy to read and enjoy. The text is also very charming. For example: "A blue sky blue, a blue eye blue," on the page showing a blue sky adn siamese cats with dark blue eyes. "Well hello yellow bright and mellow..." and more.
Very enjoyable. A great review of the colors. A great way to introduce your child to the wide range of colors within a color.
Enjoy! I expect to for many years.

Format: Hardcover
I'm surprised this book does not have more reviews. I think if it was published as a board book that it might.

My 13-month old son loves this book because it rhymes, it is about colors, it doesn't have a lot of words and he can point to things he knows like a school bus, a truck, a bird. Also he loves anything with a firetruck in it and this book has a big red firetruck on the second page.

I read the book to my first grade class along with other color books in my White Rabbit Color Book Unit during the first two weeks of school. Who Said Red? fits beautifully in with the writing and art projects I do in the unit.
