Amazon.com Review

What comes to mind when you think of the color black? How about white? Blue? Yellow? Green? In their vibrant book about color, Sandra and Myles Pinkney step beyond the basic color-teaching concept to encourage young readers to consider color in a broader spectrum. Accompanying simple, dynamic text, photos of many multicultural children fill the pages of this book, representing a veritable rainbow of ethnic groups. A Hungarian Italian boy, swathed in denim, is on the blue page: "Cool / RUGGED / Sippin' on a hot day / Relaxing in the BREEZE." The green page is for an African American-Native American-Portuguese girl. Brown is Vietnamese, Tan--West African, Pink—-Dutch German. Each spread is filled with the luscious featured color: purple jam, purple T-shirt, purple teddy bear; tan sand, tan outfit. Children of all backgrounds will love learning their colors with the cute, very real-looking kids on these pages. Sandra and Myles Pinkney previously collaborated on Shades of Black : A Celebration of Our Children. (Ages 2 to 5) --Emilie Coulter

From Publishers Weekly

As they did in Shades of Black: A Celebration of Our Children, husband-and-wife team Sandra L. and Myles C. Pinkney once again pair poetry and lively photographs in A Rainbow All Around Me. A multiethnic cast of children presents each color of the rainbow. For "Blue," photos of a blue-eyed, denim-clad boy accompanies "Cool/ Rugged/ Sippin' on a hot day/ Relaxing in the Breeze." A dark-eyed, bronze-skinned girl in a "Green" dress sits on "Fresh/ Soft blades [of grass]" with a basket of Granny Smith apples.

Format: Hardcover
A joyful group of multiethnic children guide young readers through the bright, jazzy colors of the rainbow. On each double spread page, a child from one culture shares their fun focusing on a color. The rich, creative text and terrific photographs bring these colors vividly to life. A little boy from Jordan is dressed in a tuxedo, ready to dance with the words, "Tappin', Rhythm, Moving feet, Dancin' to the beat." Every few pages, a multicultural band of children wave flags of color, pointing to a rainbow painted with the text, "Colors are you. Colors are me." The succinct and poetic style of the text as well as the outstanding artwork and friendly faces will appeal to youngsters from preschool through first grade, while gently allowing them to consider the rainbow of humanity. This provides a great jumping board to discuss feelings and emotions connected to ethnic diversity.

My daughter's Pre-K has this book and it is looked at so often that it is tattered and torn. My daughter wanted one for Xmas so "Santa" got her this one. I think I will buy a second one for the school. Very nice, easy to read, excellent photos and color and nice message arout us all being different colors...yet all the same. Don't hesitate to buy this one for sure!

As always with the Pinkneys, the pictures in this book are wonderful. My little ones really likes this book and I've book copies of all of their other books, too.
