Green by Laura Vaccaro Seeger

In 12th place for 2012 picture book:

See all that fancy information on top? That's my way of trying to make these reviews more clean-cut and accessible to you.  You'll have to bear with me as I attempt to clean it up a little more.

So, let's talk about this book. First, you're going to see some very powerful oil-on-canvas images. Also, you're going to see clever usage for cut-outs. Finally, you're going to see simplistic words, vibrant color, and a green homage.

Someone needs to get on Laura's website and demand the rest of the secondary colors - primary colors too. I really think this would make an awesome companion to a primary school art teacher. It really shows fantastic artwork with different shades and tones of green. If you've got a young kid learning his colors, pick this book up!

When it comes to Green?

Shut Up and Read It.
