As a former first grade teacher, in my opinion, Red is the Color of... would be perfect for read-aloud story time with any class. An easy reader with beautiful illustrations makes it a delightful book to share in small groups or with the whole class. The theme of accepting both yourself and others would not be lost on younger readers and teaches a valuable lesson about caring for one another. I would recommend this book to anyone with small children and Pre-K-2 classroom teachers as well. Bravo to Ms Haisten for a job well done!
