A Shower of Colors
written by Chieu Ann Urban, illustrated by Viviana Garofoli
Sterling, 2010
Board Book

Raindrops fall on colorful animals such as

blue butterfly, red rooster, [and] purple parrot

The animals run together toward the last page

Go, go, go

where they find a beautiful sunny day with a rainbow filled sky.

An enormous die-cut, see-through colored raindrop makes this book tactile in a unique way. Turn the page, the colors combine and a new color is made.

Genius and fun to read!

BOOK PLAY: Organize your own stuffed animals in color groups. Make a rainbow drawing or painting. Look for rainbows after a rainy day. Then learn your colors in Spanish.
