Mixed: A Colorful Story Reviews
4 1/2 stars
Nobody is the best, but one day a Red announces that Reds are the best and starts the whole color war. Soon none of the colors are getting along; all of go their separate ways. Until, a small change happens! Sometimes that is all it takes, for one person to make a small step to take a big change.

Mixed is a must-have PB from @arreechung. Powerful message in simple picture book. Life lessons around acceptance, tolerance, respect for others. Masterful use of primary colors to illustrate the beauty of diversity and acceptance for all. Great book for difficult and necessary conversations esp in our scary world. ...more
This is a wonderful, fresh take on the usual colour mixing story. Even though I could predict that the colors would mix together, I didn’t realize it would happen in such a fun and visually exciting way. I really loved the way the author didn’t dumb down the text and used lovely words such as “vibrant” and “fascinated” and “possibilities.”
In a way, this reminded me of a modern take on Dr. Seuss’s The Sneetches, but without the rhyming and the machine. (Maybe a good opportunity for comparing and ...more
