    Sky Color is a beautiful story with an even more beautiful message. The pictures are wonderfully depicted. Encourages students to use their critical thinking skills, imagination and be creative. I would recommend this story.

    This book stands out, it's cute, has a good message that every child can be an artist. I loved the illustrations.This book encourages creativeness, I love it and would read it to anyone. Since it's such an artistic book I would read it to any age, especially in an art class.

    Because the sky is frequently some sort of blue we tend to generalize that to "the sky is blue." For kids creating art, the step from generic blue sky to specific colors of the sky at individual times can be tough. Reynolds manages to explain the idea of specifics in a way that's very easy for young children to grasp. The art is cute and engaging, the concept, as he puts it, is simple and concrete. The result is awesome, whether or not one is really interested in the ideas of creating art.

    Library copy.

    Following up on his previous picture-books meant to encourage children to explore their potential as artists, The Dot and Ish, Peter H. Reynolds presents the story of Marisol in this third book in what the dust-jacket blurb calls his "Creatrilogy." An enthusiastic young artist who loves to draw and paint, and who is never without her box of art supplies, Marisol is put in charge of painting the sky for her class's mural for the school library. Distressed when she can't find the right hue, she observes the changing colors of the sky throughout the afternoon and evening, eventually realizing that she has been approaching the problem from the wrong angle. Rather than lamenting the fact that she doesn't have paint that is "sky color," she should be asking: what is sky color...?As with its predecessors, I enjoyed reading Sky Color, both for the engaging story and for the charming artwork. Moving on from his original "just get started" message, in The Dot, and the ideas he presents about following one's own artistic vision, in Ish, Reynolds addresses the importance of artistic flexibility and looking at things from a different perspective here. An initial problem - the lack of blue paint for the sky portion of the class mural - is solved when Marisol realizes that the sky isn't always blue, and that she isn't required to depict it in one particular way. Recommended to young artists, and to anyone looking for children's stories that encourage creativity, and involvement in the arts.

    Not Reynolds's best book but still a lovely, simple story to inspire creativity.

    Kids often see things as "the sky is blue" , "the grass is green" when they paint and draw pictures. This is a story where the little girl has to think outside the crayon box and realizes that the sky isn't always blue. It's a beautiful, eye opening book for kids. It would be great to read before painting.

    Sky Color is the third book in Peter Reynold's creatrilogy, which also includes The Dot and Ish. Marisol is a budding artist who lives and breathes for painting so when she is asked to help paint a mural in the library she is ecstatic. Marisol volunteers to paint the sky but is taken aback when she discovers there is no blue paint. A puzzled Marisol becomes more attuned to her surroundings and begins to notice nature's abundance of colors, tones, and hues. A reminder for everyone of all ages to pause and take note of the vast array of colors in our world and to embrace creativity and individuality.
