Die cut pages bring surprise after surprise in this magical new book from the "Queen of the concept book"—an intricate and satisfying homage to green, the color of all creation.

How many kinds of green are there? There's the lush green of a forest on a late spring day, the fresh, juicy green of a just-cut lime, the incandescent green of a firefly, and the vivid aquamarine of a tropical sea. In her newest book, Caldecott and Geisel Honor Book author Laura Vaccaro Seeger fashions an homage to a single color and, in doing so, creates a book that will delight and, quite possibly astonish you. This title has Common Core connections.

User Review  - MCHBurke - LibraryThing

Seeger did an amazing job not only showing the wide, wide world of this color, but also the way each painting uses cutouts to play with the pages before and after. I found myself flipping by back and forth to see, for instance, what was painted on one page to make up fish eyes on the he next. Read full review

A deceptively simple picture book about the color green and where it appears in nature where the artist played incredible attention to detail. Read full review
