There are so many books that focus on color.  These first three books were all a part of our preschool library, and I am excited to share them with M and M now.

The Crayon Box that Talked

by Shane Derolf     Illustrated by Michael Letzig

A very wise little girl stumbles upon a box of crayons that can’t seem to get along, read how she shows each and every one of them just how important the other is!  The message of friendship is just as fun and creative as the description of each color.

My Crayons Talk

by Patricia Hubbard     Illustrated by G. Brian Karas

What is extra special about this book?  The super cute pictures?  The feeling expressed with color?  The sing song verse that lends itself to dramatic storytelling?  I think its the way the creators of this book cleverly included gold and silver.
