Find your favorite color in this celebration of hues that’s just right for the youngest picture book reader. Of all the colors that there are, which one is your color star?

There are so many wonderful colors in the world! The child in this exuberant rhyming picture book loves yellow best (it brings sunshine to his day!), but he knows there are lots of other delightful colors out there too. Follow him on a playful walk through a bright, bold watercolor world, filled with red roses, pink pillows, and gorgeous green grass and trees. Then decide which hue best suits you!

Editorial Reviews

"A bright and breezy appreciation of yellow (and other colors too).... Scansion varies, sometimes an infectious Seuss-ian patter (“Which color do you love the most? / Which color could you eat on toast?”).... The most engaging of these cheerfully simple watercolor illustrations highlight just one color, such as when the girl, green-clad, swings through a landscape of green trees and grasses. Her jubilant, blocky profile and open-mouthed grin make her exuberance easy to share...sunny as yellow."
"“Which color is the queen for you?/ Yellow, orange, red, or blue?/ Purple? Green? Or maybe pink?/ Which is the best? What do you think?”.... Every page is a celebration of the colors mentioned.... As Horacek (Good Night, Sleep Tight) delights in vivid crayon-box hues in her watercolors, she doesn’t ignore skin color—her cast of...children represents a diversity of ethnic backgrounds.... It’s an enthusiastic ode to color, one that’s likely to prompt debates about which color truly is the “best by far.”"
"This rhyming picture book about colors encourages children to choose their favorite. . . . The naïve-style watercolor illustrations depict a diverse group of boys and girls. On two spreads, the color of the text matches the word it spells, helping to reinforce the connection between words and pictures. This cheerful story will teach toddlers and preschoolers about a key concept."
"If you have a young child you have to have Yellow Is My Colour Star!. . . . I adore this book. It’s one of my all-time favourite picture books for the very young. . . . It’s divine. . . the pictures are wonderfully colourful and original; and it’s quirky in a manner that it SO Horacek no one else can come near it. The text has a gorgeous rhyme to it, lovely repetition, and lilting rhythm. The fact that it also teaches the colours to tiny tots is almost, but not quite, irrelevant. Best of all it’s short! Bliss for busy parents, and a beautiful gift for children, every time it's read."
