The world of colors is one of the first that children come to know. But no introduction is quite like Full Color, here reissued from Creative Editions' 2008 original in a smaller format suited for smaller hands. The strange, wonderful creatures of artist Etienne Delessert present all the colors of the rainbow, identify the primary colors, and illustrate how three colors can make countless others. Mixing a dab of education with a swirl of lighthearted illustrations, Full Color is a blend of pure fun!

Internationally acclaimed illustrator Delessert returns to basics with this elegant, simple introduction to color. As in previous titles, such as A Was an Apple Pie (2005), Delessert calls on an endearing, unidentifiable animal (here an apparent blend of rabbit, rhinoceros, and human child) to introduce the concepts. The text reads like economical lines of poetry as it moves through descriptions of each color in the rainbow: “Red like a kid blushing.” “Orange like flames.” Clad in a sporty T-shirt and shorts, the creature appears washed in each hue—as green as grasshoppers and grass, as radiant yellow as the sun. Particularly effective are the illustrations that show what happens when primary colors combine: a blue and a yellow creature make green when they shake hands, for example, while a red animal kicks a blue one in the pants, creating purple at the point of impact. Both fanciful and clear, this introduction to color theory will delight children, as well as teachers eager to find a new way to talk about the rainbow, beyond “Roy G. Biv.” Preschool-Grade 1. --Gillian Engberg
