My son is 7 years old and we read this book together! The colorful pages kept his interest. The rhymes acted as little jingles and made it easy for him to remember what two primary colors made the secondary color. When we completed the reading portion he was ready to experiment with watercolors! It was fun to watch his sense of accomplishment when he achieved the outcome he wanted! “Look Mom..look… I did it!” Who thought that making green can make someone so happy?!
