Mixed: A Colorful Story Reviews
A concept book that is funny, delivers a satisfying message, and has loads of visual appeal. It’s kind of an origin story for non-primary colors! At first, Red, Yellow and Blue live in harmony, but then there is a rift. Luckily, for humanity and art, Blue and Yellow fall in love and have a baby, who is named Green. More colors mix, and more non-primary colors are born, with new names like Jade, Lavender and Amber. It’s such a clever idea to anthropomorphize the colors, and then have a solution f ...more
This book explores tolerance, discrimination, and segregation in a fun, accessible manner that will make an impact on kids and adults alike. The bravery of two dots to defy their community's segregation by color (red, blue, and yellow), results not only in the creation of a new color, but transforms their town into something amazing.

It'd work a little better if it was like "and then Red decided that it was the very best color and decid ...more
Every child, school, and library needs this book on their shelf. ❤❤❤
Masterfully written and illustrated with powerful metaphors for social justice. Tolerance, kindness, and seeing points of view of others are lessons kids will take to heart and, hopefully, share with others. Or, as my daughter said after reading, “It doesn’t matter what you look like, it’s what’s on the inside.” A definite #classroombookaday.
Such a wonderful book about diversity using colors!! Small children and adults will find the value in the book’s message!
Mixed: A Colorful Story is a children's picture book written and illustrated by Arree Chung, which cleverly tells a story about acceptance, tolerance, segregation, integration, and respect for others told in a story about colors.
The text is simplistic and straightforward. At first blush, it seems like a typical color book staring the primary colors: red, blue, and yellow. However, it is surprisingly deep. It talks about segregation when red seemingly proclaim they are best color and the three co ...more
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
