What to Read Wednesday: Color Themed Books for Kids

Books About COLORS

This post may contain affiliate links. Read my disclosure policy.

Open up a box of crayons, and you have unlimited possibilities to color your world. Nowadays, coloring isn’t just for kids anymore, and oh, how FUN to get creative and brighten up your day with color. My kids and I love to paint, color, cut, and paste, and we have since they were very little.

Teaching kids about colors early on is so much fun, as they wonder and marvel at mixing up different colors of play dough or colored water. It’s magic to see blue and red come together in a vibrant purple!

If you have any littles in your life, share a few of our favorite color themed books with them, and then pull out some art supplies and do a little experimenting. We are sharing the best color themed books for kids, and we’ve also added a few unexpected titles for older kids that have themes of color. Our teen literature group read all of these books, and we had some fun conversations talking about the symbolism and mood of colors in the stories.

If you have any favorite color themed books to add to our list, please share them with us in the comments below. As always, we also invite you to link up your family-friendly posts so we can visit you and see what you’re up to!

Happy Reading!

For older readers, these books include the theme of color in interesting ways:

    I had completely forgotten about one of Beloved’s favorite books-A Color Of His Own. We read that book so often that she could read it herself at a very young age. She has always been fascinated by color. My favorite color is green!

      Thanks for sharing that, Cee Lee! Leo Leonni books are so beautiful.

    My daughter adores Blucy!
    And I thought My Many Coloured Days was quite good as well.
    I haven’t read The Great Gatsby, but perhaps I should!
    Thanks for the ideas!

      Blucy is such a fun book, and so beautifully illustrated! The Great Gatsby is a wonderful classic–it’s one of my favorites.
