Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

PreS-K—This rhyming picture book about colors encourages children to choose their favorite. After a child explains how the colors pink, blue, green, purple, red, and orange make him feel, he reveals why he likes yellow best. During the first half of the book, children can search for a bird on each page. In the second half, youngsters wil enjoy naming all seven colors as they appear on frogs, butterflies, cars, and fish. The naïve-style watercolor illustrations depict a diverse group of boys and girls. On two spreads, the color of the text matches the word it spells, helping to reinforce the connection between words and pictures. This cheerful story will teach toddlers and preschoolers about a key concept.—Tanya Boudreau, Cold Lake Public Library, AB, Canada

Review

"A bright and breezy appreciation of yellow (and other colors too).... Scansion varies, sometimes an infectious Seuss-ian patter (“Which color do you love the most? / Which color could you eat on toast?”).... The most engaging of these cheerfully simple watercolor illustrations highlight just one color, such as when the girl, green-clad, swings through a landscape of green trees and grasses. Her jubilant, blocky profile and open-mouthed grin make her exuberance easy to share...sunny as yellow." (Kirkus Reviews, November 2013)

"“Which color is the queen for you?/ Yellow, orange, red, or blue?/ Purple? Green? Or maybe pink?/ Which is the best? What do you think?”.... Every page is a celebration of the colors mentioned.... As Horacek (Good Night, Sleep Tight) delights in vivid crayon-box hues in her watercolors, she doesn’t ignore skin color—her cast of...children represents a diversity of ethnic backgrounds.... It’s an enthusiastic ode to color, one that’s likely to prompt debates about which color truly is the “best by far.”" (Publishers Weekly, October 2013)

"This rhyming picture book about colors encourages children to choose their favorite. . . . The naïve-style watercolor illustrations depict a diverse group of boys and girls. On two spreads, the color of the text matches the word it spells, helping to reinforce the connection between words and pictures. This cheerful story will teach toddlers and preschoolers about a key concept." (School Library Journal, January 2014)

"If you have a young child you have to have Yellow Is My Colour Star!. . . . I adore this book. It’s one of my all-time favourite picture books for the very young. . . . It’s divine. . . the pictures are wonderfully colourful and original; and it’s quirky in a manner that it SO Horacek no one else can come near it. The text has a gorgeous rhyme to it, lovely repetition, and lilting rhythm. The fact that it also teaches the colours to tiny tots is almost, but not quite, irrelevant. Best of all it’s short! Bliss for busy parents, and a beautiful gift for children, every time it's read." (Mem Fox)

Format: Kindle Edition
I love finding books that teach concepts and tell stories, and when I first looked through Yellow is My Color Star, I knew I had found an excellent book for toddler story time. The watercolor illustrations are beautiful and vibrant, leaving little doubt about which color is being discussed. The drawings are simple and clear, introducing the reader to the colors yellow, red, blue, and green, as well as pink, orange and purple. One two page spread depicts the color words in the color that they are describing, accompanied by a series of queens in different color robes. This is a great opportunity for young readers to match the word with the color!

This short picture book has a smooth read aloud flow which provides plenty of opportunity for interaction. The young star of the story declares right away that her favorite color is yellow, and then invites readers to decide which color is their favorite. Our narrator remains true to her favorite color, but offers up plenty of chances for readers to decide for themselves. My favorite section depicts our narrator surrounded by jars of different colored jam and toast, asking "Which color do you love the most? Which color would you eat on toast?" She is of course enjoying yellow jam on toast. This makes me smile.

Yellow Is My Color Star is a wonderful choice for color learning, an excellent choice for toddler story time, and a must have for any toddler's personal collection.

Yellow is not my favorite color but no matter. This upbeat picture book doesn't just focus on a single color. The rhymed text incorporates the colors of the rainbow and the reader is often asked questions that allow him or her to insert his/her favorite color into the story.

You'll notice that the children featured in the book's illustrations are quite active and that may well encourage toddlers to jump up and dance, run around or just wiggle a bit. Now that's certainly not a bad thing.

This happy picture book's bright palette is also a nice reminder that Spring is just around the corner. And after the winter we have had that's a good thing too!
