Peter Reynold's SKY COLOR - GIVEAWAY!
Candlewick does the best children's books. This latest is proof - SKY COLOR by Peter Reynolds. As he did with THE DOT and ISH, Peter takes a seemingly simple idea and turns it on its head.
Marisol is to paint the sky in her school's mural, but one color is missing from the art box... "How am I going to make the sky without blue paint?" She asks.
When asked what color sky is, most people will say "blue," but the sky is so many more colors than that! If you've ever watched a sunset, you know. So does Marisol as she watches the sky that evening and into the next day when it's raining and the sky is anything but blue. What a wonderful thing to discover when you never really thought about it before!
In lieu of an interview, Candlewick is offering TWO copies of SKY COLOR to go to two of my lucky commenters. So enter to win - you're chances just doubled! (Must live in the continental US to win.)
