From School Library Journal:

Grade 3-5?Beginning with a history of the first words used to describe black, white, and the primary colors, Dewey goes on to trace the history of the English names for hues as varied as puce, sepia, and electric pink. While the language of color is the focus here, much multicultural and geographical information is included. There is an attempt to arrange the text by categories (jewel-like colors, colors from the earth, etc.). The illustrations are lively, interesting, and well integrated with the text. The double-page spread featuring a garden is a knockout?the fruits and vegetables depicted simply beg to be tasted. An index with color swatches under each name is appended, making it easy for readers to identify and look up their favorites. This title will be of particular interest to browsers, especially those with an artistic bent.?Martha Rosen, Edgewood School, Scarsdale, NY
