Concepts Wednesday

Monsters Love Colors written and illustrated by Mike Austin is a friendly frolic through the land of crayons.  The author/illustrator Mike Austin has a lively time with color and some chummy monsters who aren't so monstery at all.
I like the scribbling affect and the bigger lettering for sounds and rhymes for each color.  There is mixing of colors and ends with a rollicking rainbow.
I would use this book with preschoolers to 2nd graders, depending on their literacy level.  It's very kid friendly and a good addition to the intro the colors/mixing colors category.  It's his first picture book, so I look forward to seeing more from him.
