Farmer Gray drives off in his truck to go to town. While he is gone, the animals paint the farm in all the primary colors: a Blue Goose, a Red Hen, a Yellow Chick, and a White Duck. Then they mix their colors to make other colors and the farm is done just in time for Farmer Gray's return.
Children can learn about colors in a fun story.

This was a good book. I enjoyed how they made the colors the animals painted with match their color. I also enjoyed the mixing of colors and how they painted the different farm objects those colors.
This is a humorous presentation of colors.
