Review - Color Me Happy


Color Me Happy
By Sally M. Harris
Illustrated by Cecilia Paplinskie
Guardian Angel Publishing Inc.
Ages 2 - 6

A series of events leave Sadie feeling more and more sad and blue. Nothing seems to cheer her up until she has an idea. Sadie's actions turn things around and fill her day.

This delightful picture book, written in rhyme, is a perfect way to show children how to be proactive in changing your mood when you are feeling down. At the same time it will help children learn their colors. I am sure this story will get many requests for “read it again” and will have children running to get their paints so they can color their own day.

Cecilia’s illustrations are sweet and colorful. They perfectly portray the story.

I've got a 3 yr old nephew. He's just starting to learn his colors. This would be perfect 4 him. Great review.
