4.0 out of 5 stars Quirky Dog 21 Feb 2012
Format:Hardcover
I met Blue Dog in a gallery in Carmel and was intrigued - why is Blue Dog blue? The artist tells you in a whimsical way. Loved for its humour and its colour by my generation and my grandchildren too.

5.0 out of 5 stars Big Dog is a Big Hit 5 April 2002
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This is a wonderful book! It's a surprisingly inventive and original take on colors. Children will want to read it over and over and adults will enjoy the compelling text and innovative design. The illustrations do a terrific job supporting this unique approach to looking at and thinking about color.

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved by 4-year-olds! 20 Mar 2011
By M.J. - using things the real way - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
I shared this book with my class after visiting a gallery in Louisiana. They LOVED it. The students wanted me to read it daily. The memorized the text and loved the new color words. The bright and interesting illustration are ideal for young learners. The artist also has a site that supports the use of his book in education. We downloade and watched a Blue Dog powerpoint slideshow that included a photo of the actual dog the paintings are modeled from.

Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I used this book in my art classes and the kids loved it. It doesn't have a lot of words so we could start drawing our blue dogs.
