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.

I have been teaching since 1998. I have experience teaching Pre-K, Kindergarten, First, and Third grade. My passion is teaching Pre-K students, because they are like sponges who soak up information and knowledge. As a Pre-K teacher, I have the incredible opportunity to watch my four/five year old students undergo an amazing transformation. Students that enter school unable to recognize a single letter, color, number or shape but are quickly transformed into wonderfully print-literate and mathematical conversationalists.

I would love to introduce this book to my Pre-K students when we are working on the color Green. The more my ELL students (English Language Learners) are exposed to the colors, the easier it is for them to remember the colors! Great illustrations!
