A fantastic children's book about all things green! Great for developing early lieracy skills!

Love the illustrations and all the different shades of green. worked well both at toddler time and reading aloud programs. For older children had them say green with me.

Very good book to share with little ones. Enjoyed it very much.

What a beautifully painted children's book. It's well thought out, and inspiring. Beautiful.

This is a simple, yet beautiful book to educate children on colors. This in particular is green - and all it's variations. There is a fun component that brings the pages together in an interactive way. Very well done.

Just look at that cover. I vacillate between wanting to smear those thick paints with my hands and wanting to lick it to see if it tastes like green frosting. If my weirdness is any kind of a litmus test, kids will definitely get a visceral reaction when they flip through the pages. I know we’re talking colors here but if I were to capture this book in a single word then there’s only one that would do: Delicious.

Open the book and the first pictures you see are of a woodland scene. Two leaves hang off a nearby tree as the text reads “forest green”. Turn the page and those leaves, cut into the paper itself, flip over to two fishies swimming in the deep blue sea. A tortoise swims lazily by, bubbles rising from its head (“sea green”). Another page and the holes of the bubbles are turned over to become the raised bumps on a lime. And so it goes with each new hole or cut connecting one kind of green to another. We see khaki greens, wacky greens, slow greens and glow greens until at last Seeger fills the page with boxes filled with different kinds of green. This is followed by a stop sign and the words “never green” against an autumn background. On the next page it is winter and “no green” followed by an image of a boy planting something. The final spread shows a man and his daughter gazing at a tree. The description: “forever green”. You bet.
