8) 8 Colorful Children's Books

Mouse Paint By Ellen Stohl Walsh- The tale of three mice who take a dip in some paint and then discover they can mix colors together to make new colors.

In A Blue Room By Jim Averbeck- We recently took this book out of the library and I love it. A story of a little girl who is not tired but her mother gets her ready for bed one sense at a time.

A Day With No Crayons By Elizabeth Rusch- After drawing on the wall Liza looses her crayons and discovers that the world is filled with colors she can use to make art! I love paint and crayon color names so this book makes me giggle.

My Many Colored Days By Dr. Seuss- A Dr Seuss classic all about associating colors with feelings.

Little Blue and Little Yellow By Leo Lionni- Although this is a long standing classic it is new to us and we have been loving the story of best friends little yellow and litttle blue.

Color By Ella Doran, David Goodman and Zoe Miller- I am still swooning over this book, click the link to read my full length ode.

Planting A Rainbow By Lois Ehlert- Beautiful illustrations of all different flowers in every color of the rainbow. One of my personal favorites especially in the winter when I need a little spring!

Double Pink Kate Feiffer- For all the pink lovers out there (this is one of the Bee's all time favorites) the story of Madison who loves pink so much she wants everything to be pink.


  1. So many great titles. I have a few that I really like too...The Land of Colors by Margaretta Lundell and The Great Blueness by Arnold Lobel.

  2. Thanks Stephanie! I am always on the lookout for good new books, we will definitely have to check those out!

  3. I’m impressed, I have to admit. Genuinely rarely should i encounter a weblog that’s both educative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you may have hit the nail about the head. Your idea is outstanding; the problem is an element that insufficient persons are speaking intelligently about. I am delighted we came across this during my look for something with this. sarkari result com
