Why Is Blue Dog Blue?

When kids first start experimenting with color, it seems they just go with what they feel--pink clouds, purple grass, etc. They don't follow the rules and make things the way they are in reality and I love that stage.

Slowly, they start to notice that grass is green, and the sky is blue, etc, and they lose some of that creative abandon.

I liked that this book reminded us that artists don't have to paint things the way they really are. (They can, but they don't HAVE to.)

Do you have any favorite art or color books to share?
