My Blue Is Happy

My Blue Is Happy

My Blue Is Happy






My sister says that 
blue is sad.  
Like a lonely song.




This book is absolutely lovely.  From the beautiful words to the breathtaking illustrations...just lovely.  I feel like it embraces our differences and shows how each of us has our own set of eyes with which we see the world.  For me, this feels like what all the talk about diversity in kidlit is really about--accepting that we are all individuals and that we each feel something different.







Jessica Young on My Blue Is Happy:

"I remember being a kid and realizing that everyone didn't always share my point of view.  For me colors represent the endless variations we find in nature and in one another."
