What color is the sky? If you answered "blue," then Sky Color will open your eyes and mind to the myriad possibilities beyond basic blue. In this story by the author of Ish and The Dot, Peter H. Reynolds once again challenges his readers to expand their creative horizons. A sky can be so much more than one familiar shade-think golden sunsets, gray storms, or rosy dawns. This is a wonderful book to share with young artists or anyone looking to think more creatively.
