Sky Color

1 CD. 5 min. Weston Woods. 2014. $12.95. ISBN 9780545523301.
PreS-Gr 4—Marisol, an "artist through and through," is very excited to participate with her class in painting a mural for the library. Marisol assigns herself the task of painting the sky, only to discover there is no blue paint. She ponders this dilemma while inadvertently observing the sky's transition from sunshine to twilight to gray dawn. Then she finds her answer! The audio leans towards depending on the book, yet the background shuffles, bells, and falling rain accompanied by the perfect tempo of music adds another colorful layer to Reynolds's soft water-colored illustrations and inspiring story line. A gentle nudge for the aspiring artist in all of us.
