Summary: Farmer Gray drives off in his truck to go to town. While he is gone, the animals paint the farm in all the primary colors: a Blue Goose, a Red Hen, a Yellow Chick, and a White Duck.

Young Reader Reaction: Our daughter picked out this book. She liked watching the animals paint the farm and seeing what colors they made when they mixed their colors. This book really helped her to understand the concept of mixing colors.

Adult Reader Reaction: This was a good book. I enjoyed how they made the colors the animals painted with match their color. I also enjoyed the mixing of colors and how they painted the different farm objects those colors.

Pros: Children can learn about colors in a fun story.

Cons: None.

Borrow or Buy: Buy. If you have more than one child or a child who is having difficulty with the color issue, this is a great book to own. I would also buy one for a library. I would buy it for anyone who had young children as it explains the mixing of colors in an easy manner.
