About this title
An introduction to poetry presents the verse of a leading nineteenth-century poet, accompanied by color illustrations that help young readers learn to identify basic colors by matching them with commonplace objects such as roses, pears, grass, and clouds.From School Library Journal:
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
