Please Note: This post was inspired by the color day posts on DesignSponge and the particularly colorful outfit I wore to work today. The yellow striped shirt and cobalt blue pants led to a "You look bright today" from more than one of my students.
+ A Ferret in a Garret -- This interesting tale, first written by Peter Hoffman when he was in fifth grade, attributes Jackson Pollack's inspiration to a ferret sneaking into his garret.
+ Dream -- This book, which explores various stages of life through colors, has a great message. I occasionally use it as a break from our regular classroom routine to discuss goal setting, and while I was a little nervous the first time I used it, it turned out to be something that my students really enjoy.
+Green -- I was first introduced to Laura Vaccaro Seeger when Liam and I checked out First, The Egg last spring. This is another great book, and the cutouts always amaze me.
+Press Here -- I had heard great things about this interactive book, and I was really excited to be the first family to check it out from our library. For whatever reason, Liam wasn't really into it. Who knows, maybe another day he'll decide it's a great book.
Other color-related books I'd love to check out include: One, The Dot, and this Pantone board book looks really fun.
