Red, Yellow, and Blue

This is one book in a series, written by Carolina Martin, M.Ed. of and illustrated by Julia Garmon of www.theplaidponycom. We've created a series of stories to teach about the basic elements of art. In this case, the focus is on the element of color. In this book, the birds, "Red", "Yellow" and "Blue" are the first birds to arrive on the street and to form a neighborhood. On the color wheel, red, yellow and blue are called the Primary Colors, from which all other colors are made. They are situated near each other. We've created this book to read to our new family blessing, Carolina's Grandson and Julia's Nephew. His Mom calls him her "Baby Bird".

Red, Yellow & Blue is written, illustrated and printed in the U.S.A. It also comes with a set of handmade red, yellow & blue crayons. We melt down old crayons and recycle them into the shape of a heart, just for you! We're working hard to act on our commitment to our planet, going green and to keeping people working in the U.S.A.!

Each page has a corresponding activity page for you to exercise your creativity!

We have also included coloring pages in the back of the book with line drawings of your favorite characters!

We will be promoting our book through an interactive book launching tour this year! At each location you will have the opportunity to participate in a hands on art activity based on Red, Yellow, and Blue, chat with the creators of the book and have a chance to buy hand made as well as recycled merchandise!
