Description My Blue Is Happy de Jessica Young:
What is your blue like? A lyrical ode to colors -- and the unique ways we experience them -- follows a little girl as she explores the world with her family and friends. Your neighbor says red is angry like a dragon's breath, but you think it's brave like a fire truck. Or maybe your best friend likes pink because it's pretty like a ballerina's tutu, but you find it annoying -- 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 -- and opens up infinite possibilities for seeing the world in a wonderful new way.
