Sky Color by Peter H. Reynolds -ADVISABLE

Reynolds, Peter Sky Color 31 pgs, Candlewick, 2012. $9.45.  (Rating: G)
Marisol is thrilled to get a chance to paint part of a library mural at her school. But how can she paint a sky when they are all out of blue paint. Marisol starts to look at the sky at different times of day, and comes up with a wonderful solution.
This was a great book about thinking outside of the box. This is a perfect book for students, as a message to keep their creativity and unique thinking alive as they make their way through school. (Which we all know can sometimes be a right and wrong answer kind of place). I also love how everything but the paint and sky are illustrated in subdued tones, playing up the brightness of the colors.
