What is Your Favorite Color? by Eric Carle and Friends; illustrated by Eric Carle and Friends. 2017. Various mediums. Published by Henry Holt and Co.
Brief summary: Fifteen famous children illustrators answer what color they like and why.
Comments: The illustrations are two page layouts in the illustrator’s own unique style. The back pages have a photo of the illustrator as a child and a brief biographical sketch. The name of the artist is in the color he/she likes. We have all been asked this ancient question, but have we explained why? This book could be shared with young readers before asking them the question. I would include a “draw your reason” part to this activity as well. Note: Anna Dewdney is in this collection. That tugged at my heart a little when I turned to her layout. She was one of my students’ favorite rhyming author.
