    As a fan of Kathryn Otoshi's One (a fantastic book about how it just takes one person to stand up against a bully to allow others to join in), I felt a nice familiar warmth at the start of this beautiful and fun picture book about colors. Red is hot. Yellow is bright. Blue is cool........

    A concept book that is funny, delivers a satisfying message, and has loads of visual appeal. It?s kind of an origin story for non-primary colors! At first, Red, Yellow and Blue live in harmony, but then there is a rift. Luckily, for humanity and art, Blue and Yellow fall in love and ...

    I dunno you guys. This book didn't really work for me. It's not a great color-concept book because it doesn't spend a lot of time on "yellow and red makes orange" etc and some of the color combos are just wrong like "green plus orange makes...green?" It also didn't really work for me a...

    Was reading this at #nerdcampMI and in the middle of reading it a teacher turned around to tell me that the boys in Thailand had all gotten out of the cave; I was reminded that there is potential for good in this world. ...

    This book reminds me so much of Leo Lionni's classic book from 1959, "Little Blue and Little Yellow." The timeless themes are reinvented using bold and humorous illustrations. A great way for children to learn about colors, while getting an introduction to inclusion and diversity. ...

    This book explores tolerance, discrimination, and segregation in a fun, accessible manner that will make an impact on kids and adults alike. The bravery of two dots to defy their community's segregation by color (red, blue, and yellow), results not only in the creation of a new color, ...

    My kids absolutely love this book. Mixed by @arreechung is a creative story about a place where only three primary colors existed. They coexisted happily until Reds staged a revolt and started pitting each color against the other. They built separate cities for themselves, and bragged ...

    The first things we see when we step outside each morning are a multitude of elements composing one unique scene next to or layered on another scene. These visuals are full of shifting colors, lights and darks and blends of various hues. If we are able to dim our other senses momentari...

    A concept book that is funny, delivers a satisfying message, and has loads of visual appeal. It?s kind of an origin story for non-primary colors! At first, Red, Yellow and Blue live in harmony, but then there is a rift. Luckily, for humanity and art, Blue and Yellow fall in love and ...

    Masterfully written and illustrated with powerful metaphors for social justice. Tolerance, kindness, and seeing points of view of others are lessons kids will take to heart and, hopefully, share with others. Or, as my daughter said after reading, ?It doesn?t matter what you look li...

    This book is so cute, simple, and powerful! Only downside, I wish I wrote it myself. ...

    This is a wonderful, fresh take on the usual colour mixing story. Even though I could predict that the colors would mix together, I didn?t realize it would happen in such a fun and visually exciting way. I really loved the way the author didn?t dumb down the text and used lovely wo...

    I was impressed with how the author approached a challenging topic with grace and humor and in such a relatable fashion. The use of primary colors--red, yellows, blues--painted with black India ink and acrylics makes the images stand out and the message very clear. I had to smile at ho...

    Such a wonderful book about diversity using colors!! Small children and adults will find the value in the book?s message! ...

    MIXED is a great new concept book that makes learning about colors fun for kids and adults! In the beginning there were three colors: Reds, Yellows, and Blues. Each of them had their own qualities and they lived in perfect harmony. One afternoon Reds decided to declare that they were t...

    Wow! The kids and I loved this book. The kids had huge smiles on their faces when we got to the end, and voted to give this book 5 stars. I love how it is both a book about colors (and different colors you can get from mixing - yellow + blue = green) AND also a book that shows how b...

    4 1/2 stars Nobody is the best, but one day a Red announces that Reds are the best and starts the whole color war. Soon none of the colors are getting along; all of go their separate ways. Until, a small change happens! Sometimes that is all it takes, for one person to make a small ...

    A tale of three colors; red, yellow, and blue, who lived in harmony, until discord was caused to bring about isolation and separation. But one day a Yellow, and a Blue met, married, and had a Green, Soon discord was replaced by love, tolerance and the embracing of differences which led...

    This book reminds me so much of Leo Lionni's classic book from 1959, "Little Blue and Little Yellow." The timeless themes are reinvented using bold and humorous illustrations. A great way for children to learn about colors, while getting an introduction to inclusion and diversity. ...
