Little Blue and Little Yellow, by Leo Lionni

Published May 19, 2013 by Dagmar

littleblueI’m a big fan of Leo Lionni’s books.  They are timeless.  This is a wonderful pre-k book that never fails with my preschool and kindergarten students.  In this book, Leo Leonni blends colors to create a story of friendship and family.  His ripped paper art is creative and appealing to young audiences.

Little blue has lots of friends, but little yellow is his best friend.  One day, little blue goes out looking for little yellow.  When they finally find each other, they hug and become one green dot.  They go on all sorts of adventures together but when they go home to their families, their families don’t recognize them.  It isn’t until they both cry that their tears turn them back into blue and yellow.  The families recognize their children and everyone hugs, going from blue and yellow to green.
