Thrilling Thursday

Red Is a Dragon: A Book of Colors written by Roseanne Thong, illustrated by Grace Lin is a delightful book of colors.  As we go through a rainbow of colors, we see what each means to this Chinese-American girl.  First published in 2001, it holds up being republished in 2015.  
The text is rhyming and the gouache paintings are bold.  I'll use this in my Toddlerpalooza program and my Preschool Storytime.  It's a book I'll recommend to parents and preschool teachers.
