If you're a fan of Eric Carle, you'll love this color, animal, and artist-themed book with with a yellow cow, a red crocodile, and a polka-dotted donkey. This book might be best for kids who understand colors and animals so they won't think that horses are actually blue. :) This is a great book to talk about "coloring outside of the lines" and using your imagination--as an artist, your bunny rabbit can be striped and you can create an orange turtle. :)
