Little Kid Reaction

When we finished reading this the first time, our preschooler handed me the rose colored glasses and then proceeded to quote the last few pages of the book. Our preschooler requests the book or will just sit down and look at the pictures (she loves how the rainbow grows). The rose-colored glasses and anything opaque with color (e.g., lids on disposable food containers) lead the way in her world of fun and discovery.

Big Kid Reaction

Needless to say, we've read this book lots of times since it arrived. The story is a great daily reminder for parents about how we lose our sense of what's important and why we had kids in the first place!

Type of Book:
This is a picture book about how easy it can be to change your perspective on the world.
Educational Themes:

It's easy to bring this book alive. You can use the rose-colored glasses that come with the book to see new things; lay in the grass and look at the clouds; or just stop doing a chore and do something spontaneous with your child.
