Colores de la Vida

Publishers Weekly
This color-themed companion to ABeCedarios (2007) and Opuestos (2009) also features the handiwork of Oaxacan sculptors, who contribute stylized and vibrantly painted creatures that show off each color to its fullest and are set against marbled backdrops of the same hue…the sculptures are hypnotic.
Like its predecessors, this color-themed companion to ABeCedarios (2007) and Opuestos (2009) also features the handiwork of Oaxacan sculptors, who contribute stylized and vibrantly painted creatures that show off each color to its fullest and are set against marbled backdrops of the same hue. A pair of winged dragonlike creatures (for yellow/amarillo) seem to shout with glee as a third hatches from an egg, while two purple/morado rabbits, as inky as the night sky, prepare to dive into a pile of carrots. Some readers might wish for IDs for the more unusual animals, but the sculptures are hypnotic.

Hypnotic. The word is hypnotic … From full-color spread to full-color spread, Cynthia Weill uses hypnotic photographs of folk art figures from artisans from Oaxaca to illustrate the beauty, art, and vibrancy of the Colores de la vida, colors of life, in an unforgettable book as much about the wonder of the ways we can imagine the world around us as about names of colors … Each page captures a sense of wonder, of the vibrancy of color, the imagination of the artist, the name of the hue. Colors take life in this small picture book, perfect for small hands, in an astonishing pairing of visual intimacy and artistic joy that make this one of the most distinctive recent books on color – in English or otherwise.

El formato brilla por su sencillez: cada página está ilustrada por animales de artesanía que corresponden al color destacado. A la imagen le acompañan las palabras correspondientes al color, en inglés y en español.
Al final, la autora incluye un reto: "¿Puedes nombrar todos los colores en inglés?"
