How many shades of blue are there?

There’s the soft blue of a baby’s cherished blanket, the ocean blue of a romp in the waves, the chilly blue of a cold winter’s walk in the snow, and the true blue of the bond that exists between children and animals.

In this simple, sumptuously illustrated companion to Caldecott Honor Book Green, award-winning artist Laura Vaccaro Seeger turns her attention to the ways in which color evokes emotion, and in doing so tells the story of one special and enduring friendship.

Praise for Blue

Four starred reviews!

*"Though there is sorrow, it is followed by joy in this touching tribute to a heartwarming relationship that will engage readers of all ages."—School Library Journal, starred review

*"A story full of heart, this works on many levels, assuring satisfying discoveries with repeated viewings."—Booklist, starred review

*"Sumptuous, stunning, and heart-stirring."—Kirkus, starred review

*"As in Green, small die-cuts lead from each richly textured double-page spread to the next, always surprising, where the canopy of an umbrella becomes the top of a bird feeder, say, an encapsulation of the larger imaginative leaps being made from spread to spread. When was the last time a concept book made you cry?"—Horn Book, starred review

"Seeger’s Green celebrated a single color, and so too does this companion, all the while telling a poignant story."—Publishers Weekly
