    These poems were okay except for using an Indian as an example of the color Red C'mon O'Neill even leaving political correctness aside Native Americans are not actually carmine They didn't do much for me but I see many people really liked them so ymmvI had the 1989 reissue with illustrations by John Wallner which are completely different from the original I think the original Leonard Weisgard illustrations did a better job of depicting the colorsAlso Wallner you need to be a bit mindful because some of these look a little wrong

    We really enjoyed this book luckily we bought a copy with the original illustrations which are wonderful and fit perfectly with the book Two or three pages on each colour tell you the obvious things that are that colour and the not so obvious feelings sounds and experiences Although the poetry isn't wonderful we enjoyed the thoughts behind the words and look forward to making some of our own Lovely creative book

    This was given to me by friends of my parents when I was very small It seemed like a fuddy duddy book but I absolutely loved it I don't think I was reading yet or had just started so my mother read it with me I'm happy to see it's a classic and still around I can still see some of the illustrations in my mind's eye even though I haven't opened the book in 200 years

    Beautiful verses creating lovely images in a single hue This is a wonderful going to bed book for my son it's extremely soothing Unfortunately it puts my mom to sleep faster than it does him so she can't use it I however can read it over and overThe title poem What is White? White is a Dove And lily of the valley And a puddle of milk Spilled in an alley A ship's sail A kite's tail A wedding veil Hailstones and Halibut bones And some people's Telephones The hottest and most blinding light Is white And breath is white When you blow it out on a frosty night White is the shining absence of all color Then absence is white Out of touch Out of sight White is marshmallow And vanilla ice cream And the part you can't remember In a dream White is the sound Of a light foot walking White is a pair of Whispers talking White is the beautiful Broken lace Of snowflakes falling On your face You can smell white In a country room Toward the end of May In the cherry bloomMy favorite poem is Black You'll have to get the book to read it

    I hope to get the original Leonard Weisgard art A reviewer who gave The Little Bookroom five stars mentioned this as another beloved touchstone of her childhoodOk I was given the Wallner edition by Washoe The pictures are lovely But I can't rate the book It reminds me of The Important Book by Margaret Wise Brown I should love both of them but I actually despise them Why? Because they decree Content is gray and sleepiness too Says who? I say sleepiness is a warm brown tbh So ok yes both books could be used in a classroom to inspire creative writing Fine Teach thus In Brown's opinion in O'Neill's opinion How do you feel about these colors these things? But still If the full book is shared before the students start to write I'm concerned that their own creativity would be stifled I know mine is Any attempt I would make now would certainly be only a reaction a response nothing fresh or creativeAnd also many children encountering it don't even have that guidance They're definitely reading it as Established Wisdom And I honestly don't think either Brown or O'Neill intended that So too bad sorry but Fail

    Not the best poetry ever but still good for getting children's imaginations going I enjoyed the original illustrations by Leonard Weisgard but I'm interested in reading the edition illustrated by John Wallner as well

    This book is fantastic for teaching poetry I love it It's good for description metaphor 5 senses etc and my students have really enjoyed reading the short poems

    Love the illustrations and color The poems are good They made me think of colors in a different wayUnlike another reviewer I didn't feel like I was being dictated to but encouraged to think about colors and see them differently Just my opinionDo agree with another reviewer the reference to red is an Indian was jarring and took points off

    This is an excellent book and I love the color poems They are well written and they rhyme too I also thought is was funny to read the introduction in the book and see that publishing Hailstones and Halibut Bones was almost a mistake The author was due with some work that was not yet ready So her publisher came over to her house and took a look around in hope of finding SOMETHING she could use That's when her publisher found a bunch of poems all stuffed in a desk drawer that the author Mary O'Neill had written and collected over the years and that is how this book came to be
