My Blue Is Happy
author: Jessica Young
illustrator: Catia Chien
Your neighbor says red is angry like a dragonís breath, but you think itís brave like a fire truck. Or maybe your best friend likes pink because itís pretty like a ballerinaís tutu, but you find it annoying ó like a piece of gum stuck on your shoe. In a subtle, child-friendly narrative, art teacher and debut author Jessica Young suggests that colors may evoke as many emotions as there are people to look at them ó and opens up infinite possibilities for seeing the world in a wonderful new way.
What is your blue like? A lyrical ode to colors ó and the unique ways we experience them ó follows a little girl as she explores the world with her family and friends.
