This picture book was a 4-star rating on Goodreads for me recently, so I’m sharing it here:
Green, by Laura Vaccaro Seeger (Roaring Brook?Press, 2012)
Another striking and clever concept picture book from Laura Vaccaro Seeger. This one is about the color green, and great rhyming text (“forest green /’sea green / lime green / pea green”) and amazing use of art and cutouts make this one to look at over and over. It’s hard to describe–you?have to see it to appreciate it. It’s’really short, under 50 words, I think. So it’s an incredibly fast read. But there’s a lot there, visually, and you and the kids will want to return to it again and again to see how she works in each cutout to the current and previous spread.
