Lois Ehlert has created the perfect book for someone who, as she says, loves books and art. Both autobiography and scrap book, this title gives the reader a colorful peek inside her childhood, her studio, and her design process. With a seamstress mother and a woodworker father, Lois grew up with the examples and encouragement needed to become an award- winning picture book writer and illustrator. Each turn of the page reveals bits of her illustrations as well as the inspiration for many of her stories. Did you know that Feathers for Lunch was inspired by the time her sister’s cat Bucky escaped out the door? Or that Nuts to You came about after a real live squirrel slipped into Lois’s house. Readers will enjoy spotting familiar images from their favorite books. Lois has led a colorful life. And so can you!

Book cover Magic Colors New Review
Patrick George (2013) , under 40 pages
Audience: Preschool, Primary (k-3rd grade)
Category: Concept, Non-Fiction, Read Aloud
(This book has outstanding illustrations)

There is a lot to see in this not-so-ordinary book about colors. Young children will enjoy naming the things they see as the objects magically appear and disappear with each see-through page. In the back of the book there are big and bold colorful dots that magically turn into new colors too. Who knew magic could be found in a book? This a great book for "now you see it, now you don’t" fun.
