Every Color by Erin Kono - ESSENTIAL

Kono, Erin Eitter Every Color. PICTURE BOOK. Dial Books For Young Readers (Penguin), 2016 $16.99.  

Bear is lonely up north where it is white as far as the eye can see.  His winter animal friends devise a plan to cheer him up.  Bear needs some color.  His friend Seagull sends for a little girl to come and take Bear on a colorful world-wide adventure.  When Bear returns to his northern home of white, he realizes it was full of color all along, he just needed someone to help him see it.  

This story not only introduces the different colors of the rainbow, but shows children the different animals living in northern climates.  It even gives children a great introduction to some famous destinations around the world. The illustrations are beautifully drawn and matched to highlight the places Bear visits with a color that best represents what you will see there.
