Children’s Book Review: The Changing Colors of Amos
Posted Sep 20 2010 7:45am
Everyone knows that leprechauns are green, right? Not all of them! In the children’s book, The Changing Colors of Amos, we learn that at least one little leprechaun becomes a different color every single day! On Monday, he is “like swirling gray clouds playing tag with the thunder”! On Tuesday, Amos is “as blue as the ocean when seen from the sky.” On subsequent days, Amos turns red, purple, yellow, and orange. But Sunday is a special day because he turns the color of his dreams!
In The Changing Colors of Amos (by John Kinyon, with illustrations by Kay Selvig Flanders), children will be charmed by the rhyming verse and colorful illustrations. They’ll learn about colors, the days of the week, word play and emotions. This beautifully written and illustrated book will be a cherished part of any children’s bookshelf!
