Descripción

“Alea Marley’s cover illustration screams JOY and LOVE. I love everything about this important and necessary picture book, especially Harpreet Singh and his big heart.” —Mr. Schu, Ambassador of School Libraries for Scholastic

“This simple yet sensitive story about a child coming to terms with things beyond his control will resonate across cultures.” —Kirkus


Harpreet Singh loves his colors—but when his family moves to a new city, everything just feels gray. Can he find a way to make life bright again?

Harpreet Singh has a different color for every mood and occasion, from pink for dancing to bhangra beats to red for courage. He especially takes care with his patkahis turban—smoothing it out and making sure it always matches his outfit. But when Harpreet’s mom finds a new job in a snowy city and they have to move, all he wants is to be invisible. Will he ever feel a happy sunny yellow again?

  • (4/5)
    An exuberant young boy who liked to express his emotional state through the color of his patka - the patka is a style of turban often worn by younger Sikh boys - Harpreet Singh wasn't thrilled when his parents announced that they were moving from sunny California to a snowier region of the country. Shy and ill-at-ease in his new home and school, he took to wearing white, hoping to disappear from sight. Nothing his parents did could cheer him up. Then one snowy day he found a lovely yellow hat, and, returning it to its owner, got to know his new classmate Abby. Soon his outlook had improved, and he was back to wearing all kinds of colors... include white, to remind him of the snow on the ground, when he made his first new friend!The Many Colors of Harpreet Singh was a delightful picture-book, only the second I have read, following upon Super Satya Saves the Day, to specifically feature Sikh children, and the first I have read addressing the Sikh custom of wearing a turban. There is an afterword from scholar Simran Jeet Singh about the meaning of the turban in Sikh tradition, but while I appreciated this inclusion, and the opportunity the book affords young children to (potentially) learn about new customs, in the end what was most appealing here was the story itself, as well as the colorful artwork. Harpreet's experience of being a fish out of water in his new home is one that will feel familiar to many children, while the hopeful ending, in which he makes a new friend, will also strike a chord. The illustrations are charming - colorful, cute and expressive - and well-suited to a tale featuring color so prominently. Recommended to anyone looking for children's stories about moving, about emotions, or about the experiences of Sikh children.
