An introduction to colors and to poetry, for very young children.

PreSchool-Grade 1-- Teichman's treatment of Rossetti's poem, ``What Is Pink,'' first published in 1871, is especially fine. The opening question is set in large, black sans serif type and is accompanied by an irregular, puddlelike pool of pink color. The next page--``A rose is pink/ by the fountain's brink''--shows a graphically arresting bud and a double-tiered fountain with other roses surrounding it. This format is repeated for each color in clear and attention-grabbing paintings that can be seen well from a distance, making this an excellent choice for group sharing. It has specific use as a pattern book, or as an inspiration for children's own poetry about the colors in the everyday world. A welcome, literate addition to books on color that could be paired with Tana Hoban's Red, Blue, Yellow Shoe (Greenwillow, 1986) for a lesson in contrasting media and in increasing degrees of textual sophistication. --Ann Welton, Thomas Academy, Kent, WA

A long-loved poem provides a quality text for an introduction to the rainbow colors plus pink and white. The query that opens each couplet (``What is pink?'') faces a large, flat blob of pure, unequivocal color; on the following spread, the couplet's second line is illustrated with art notable for its simplicity and its focus on the color's true value--a feature not always observed in color books. Unusually attractive and useful. (Picture book. 3-6) -- Copyright ©1992, Kirkus Associates, LP. All rights reserved.
