About this deal

This bright new picture book not only introduces the concept of color to kids, but it also has a powerful message about acceptance, tolerance, and respect for others.

This is a great book to introduce diversity and discuss how and why people favor those who are like them. I love how it is both a book about colors (and different colors you can get from mixing - yellow + blue = green) AND also a book that shows how beautiful life is when people choose to appreciate diversity and live peacefully together. You can also move either the frame of the photo or enlarge and adjust the photo itself, which means you can get the perfect framing for each image. That is until one day a yellow and blue fall in love, they don't let others ideas of mixing get in the way of them being together. When you select a design to use, you can then easily choose between landscape, square, and portrait orientations at the top of the page.The other colors begin to take notice, and realize that by reaching out, accepting, and loving those different from them, they are creating a stronger and infinitly more interesting world. Nobody is the best, but one day a Red announces that Reds are the best and starts the whole color war. But one day a very special Blue met a very special Yellow, and found that their differences complimented each other.

It also didn't really work for me as a diversity story because the story treats the blues, yellows and reds as if they were all treated equally. Even though I could predict that the colors would mix together, I didn’t realize it would happen in such a fun and visually exciting way. Do you want a very simple and quick process with heavily guided software or do you want to do a lot of creative personalization yourself? The bravery of two dots to defy their community's segregation by color (red, blue, and yellow), results not only in the creation of a new color, but transforms their town into something amazing. This is a concept book about colors quite unlike any other that I've ever read, or maybe it is a book about something else entirely?It's hard to explain how amazing the Starts with a Story book companions are because there is just so much goodness included in each one. This didn’t go well with the other colors and after that they decided to live separate lives and moved to different parts of the city. That said, it's simple to navigate, offers enough customization and can take bulk photo uploads for even more ease. When I was done with building my photo book, I used the handy Preview function to double-check for mistakes.

The beauty and novelty of this new hue convinced the existing colors that mixing wasn't so bad, leading to a far more diverse, colorful city.

The other colors showed their disapproval, but in the end love prevailed and Blue and Yellow decided to MIX. This story explores the vibrancy and diversity of city life through gritty, yet child-friendly illustrations that are beautifully atmospheric and evocative. There are loads of different designs to choose from, handily split into separate categories (including Weddings, Pets, Adoption, Travel, and more). If you are looking for “ready to go” activities for the first day of school, be sure to check out the book companion.
