Vivid: Poems & Notes About Color

By Julie Paschkis

Celebrate the art and science of color through poetry! A playful green dragon, a Lilac Point Siamese and a rainbow picnic take the reader on a rhyming journey of colors. What was the color pink named after? What color has the shortest wavelength of visible light? Or shout out "hello!" to the yellow poem. Paschkis' latest poetry book is energetic and filled with historical facts about colors combined with beautifully written short poems. Her paintings will inspire readers to discover new combinations of color and create art. A wonderful read-aloud for the whole family.

Bear and Wolf

By Daniel Salmieri

Do you see the snowflakes falling?Bear and Wolf meet on a snowy day in the forest and decide to go for a walk. A strong friendship is formed between the two animals on this quiet winter day. What will they see along the way? After their stroll, the two unusual friends must return to their usual activities — bear goes to hibernate and wolf heads back to his pack.
