Dinosaur Colors

“Each of the colours in Dinosaur Colors has a brief text that describes what the dinosaur(s) and/or a child are doing. The opening colours of white (snow) and black (night sky) are followed by gray (fog or an Ankylosaurus - ang-KILE-uh-SAWR-us), with the text explaining that “Gray is made from mixing black and white.” This pattern is repeated with the colours now being represented by cans of house paint. Pages for red and yellow come before orange, which is red and orange mixed together, and blue plus yellow then yield green while red and blue make purple. A rainbow of red, orange, yellow, green. blue and purple are mixed together to make brown. The final double-page spread finds Tom being watched by a pair of thirsty Juravenators (JOO-ruh-ven-AT-tor) while he adds red strawberry syrup to his white milk to produce a pink beverage. The book’s closing page has a Venn-like diagram that shows how colours can be mixed together to produce new colours. Younger children can simply name the colours they see throughout Dinosaur Numbers while older children, with access to liquid colours, could be encouraged to replicate the colour mixing described in the text.” --CM Magazine, 11/13
