greenThis little book is absolutely delightful!  It’s s a true celebration of the color green in all of its forms and could be used as easily in story time or on-on-one.  It would also be a great book to use to discuss color in an art class as well.  Laura Vaccaro Seeger uses the color green and cut-outs perfectly together to create this wonderful little book that would be a great tool to model early literacy techniques with parents.  The simple text and green illustrations lend themselves to a discussion on vocabulary as well as concepts such as shapes, letters, and colors.

This book could be used for elementary school age children as well as toddler and preschoolers because the book is so excellently configured with rhyming text and beautiful illustrations.  Definitely take the time to experience this picture book!

Check out the book video from YouTube.  And see other great concepts books by Laura Vaccaro Seeger on her website.
