Art and Colors Storytime – revised
Instead of a craft project, hold a free art session. Let children try out watercolors, drawing, and any other type of free art rather than coloring sheets.
Austin, Mike. Monsters Love Colors. Monsters use crayons and paint to combine primary colors into new colors.
Daywalt, Drew. The Crayons Book of Colors. The crayons create a birthday card in this charming board book.
Godwin, Jane. Red House, Tree House, Little Bitty Brown Mouse. A mouse travels the world in this rhyming story that features counting, colors, repetition, and the mouse to find in each spread.
Litwin, Eric. Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes. Pete’s new white shoes change colors based on what he steps on in this story that reads like a song. Perfect for storytime.
Llenas, Anna. The Color Monster Goes to School. A monster who changes color with his changing mood is afraid of attending school.
Nicholls, Sally. The Button Book. Young readers “push” the button shown on each page to see various colors on the next page.
Rotner, Shelley. Colors. Vivid color photos depict items of various colors in nature.
Tullet, Herve. Mix It Up! Readers are encouraged to interact with the book, which demonstrates how to mix colors.
