Green by Laura Vaccaro Seeger.
Roaring Brook Press: NY, 2012.
Caldecott Honor 2013.

This may be the best book about colors I have seen. Obviously, the focus is on the color green, many greens. The illustrations are fantastic. Hidden in the full page spreads are cut-outs artfully connected to the next illustrations, some of them hidden well. I enjoyed the variety of the paintings and the fact that the cut-outs are not all obvious. They require looking closely and inspire further observation. There is more depth than what is usual for such a simple book, regarding content and artwork.
