Summary

Summary

Color has the power to inspire and delight. The playful photographs here invite youngsters on an international urban journey with color as their guide --- from London's famous red double-deckers to New York City's shiny black limousines to Rio de Janeiro's multicolored playgrounds. The ten colors featured are each clearly presented in a main photograph and in a smaller focus image.

School Library Journal Review

PreS-Gr 1-Milich complements his powerful The City ABC Book (2001) and City Signs (2002, both Kids Can) with a dazzling new concept book. Beginning with a red London bus, a blue warehouse wall, and a yellow highway cone, his photos create a well-planned city landscape. Precise partial photos inspire speculation on each verso with the recto revealing the complete image. The secondary colors follow: a green swing, an orange cylindrical curb block, and a purple playground stool. Black and white are next, followed by a pink playground conduit and a gray I beam. A purely visual book, the text is simply the representative color for each photo. In summation, squares of all 10 colors appear above the words "Many colors!" and face a picture of a garage door painted in different hues.-Karen Land, Greenport Public School, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
