What an adorable cute read about a boy James inspired by art and wanting to create something for the art contest! This exciting children’s story is a neat way to explain how colors work and how to create paint! It’s creative and engaging. There’s even facts to the story that I didn’t even know, like how white is actually comprised of all the colors of the rainbow. and how a red ball for example is made up of all the different color waves except for red and that’s why we see red. There’s even some neat experiments in it that could be replicated in a classroom, such as making a prism of water and see a rainbow reflected on white paper, or for an art class it discuss the color wheel, primary and secondary colors and how to make those secondary colors. As a teacher this book is incredibly resourceful for teaching young minds about paint and color!

As for the illustrations they are so beautiful and artistic! Each picture is so inviting and goes along well with the story. It makes it even easier to understand what the author is saying on each page. Perfect for little ones that are trying to understand the concept of color and how to make it with art. 

This is such an adorable read! Kids that are excited and want to learn more about art and color will really benefit form the details! It would also be perfect to use for a lesson as there’s so much to use for teaching purposes! Truly a creative artistic story!
