More About the Author

Theodor Seuss Geisel - better known to millions of his fans as Dr. Seuss - was born the son of a park superintendent in Springfield, Massachusetts, in 1904. After studying at Dartmouth College, New Hampshire, and later at Oxford University in England, he became a magazine humorist and cartoonist, and an advertising man. He soon turned his many talents to writing children's books, and his first book - And To Think That I Saw It On Mulberry Street - was published in 1937. His greatest claim to fame was the one and only The Cat in the Hat, published in 1957, the first of a hugely successful range of early learning books.

Product Description

Amazon Review

In such classics as The Cat in the Hat and Green Eggs and Ham, the text and illustrations by Dr. Seuss have always seemed inseparable--peerless fusions of verbal and visual wit. Yet when the good doctor wrote My Many Coloured Days in 1973, he specified that the manuscript should be illustrated by "a great colour artist who will not be dominated by me." Now he has got his wish. Steve Johnson and Lou Fancher have created a series of rich, painterly images that could never be mistaken for faux-Seuss. They do, however, capture something of the late author's whimsy. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Book Description

An excellent introduction to discussing feelings with children.

Format: Paperback
A beautiful book.
Both the text and the illustrations relate colours to feelings and moods in a simple and thoughtful way. The paintings are bright and recognisable (and the 'story' interesting enough) to keep the youngest captivated while you read, but with the scale and lay-out to attract those learning to read themselves.
Quite different from most Dr. Seuss books, this is more a concept piece than a traditional story, but retains the uniqueness you would expect, and is much loved by my 3 year old daughter!

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Lucky cat TOP 500 REVIEWER on 1 May 2006
Format: Paperback
This book is a great introduction to talking about how you feel in a simple pure way.

It gives the child permission to feel sad, angry, happy etc, tells them is ok, it's normal we all feel this way sometimes.

The book is beautifully painted and the pictures are very expressive using the colours to convey the correct emotion perfectly.

The text is short enough to hold the interest of even the youngest child and the rhythm and rhyme are engaging.

A beauiful book which works on many different levels and can be read as quickly or as slowly as you like as it offers the choice of just using the words or using each colour as a jumping off point to discuss deeper things

This book has beautiful illustrations which capture the essence of the feeling being described. I have personally found this works especially well with children on the autistic spectrum and very young (pre-verbal) children. It does not pass judgement on feelings or describe them as positive or negative, it simply gives an idea of what effect thay have using very simple text and powerful images.

Format: Paperback
This is a very different Dr Seuss, a little less frantic in its pace and rhyme, a little more thoughtful perhaps.

The book takes a change of direction by using other illustrators work and not the class trademark scratchy flowing drawing of the great man himself, but this is a plus, it adds to the gentleness of the story and as previously stated makes this an excellent book to draw out discussions about feelings from young ones who sometimes do not have the language to make this possible.

Not the usual Dr. Seuss read, this book utilizes color to express the complexity of feelings. The illustrations are unique and elevate the text.

I bought this book to read to/with my 6 year old Grandson, who has issues with how he feels. This book is really engaging and he has learned the general ideas of the colour meanings in context to how he feels. This gives us an opportunity for him to say how he feels in colours, when he can't find the words to express his emotions.

Format: Paperback
A beautiful book to read, has a relaxed pace and is easy to put different feelings into your reading due to the way the words are presented.

I love the poetic feel and would really recommend this to read to babies (due to the pages being so bold colour wise) and young children. A good start to getting children to share what they are feeling or what 'colour' they felt in a particular situation, could be used with single children or as a starter to a group discussion or creative activity. If comfortable, to make the best of this it would be really good if you as an adult felt free to share your 'colour' that day too.
