First off, I love what this book teaches about bullying. It just takes one to stand up to a bully, but the more defenders there are against the bully, the better. When "One" says he doesn't tolerate bullying, the others gain the courage to stand up, too. Second of all, I love that this book shows how empathy is important. The colors want to be nice to blue, and blue reaches out to red because he knows what it's like to be alone. Last of all, this book introduces main colors and numbers 1-7 with fun word play. :)
