The Changing Colors of Amos by John Kinyon...R&G!


There is  new book I am so excited to tell you about...The Changing Colors of Amos is a delightful read for your child.  It is vibrant, fun and a pleasure to read. Here is the scoop...


Of all the leprechauns who have ever lived, he is amazingly unique. Amos changes color with every new day of the week. But his Sundays are a mystery. Sunday’s colors are always found first in his dreams. And in Amos’s world, dreams often do come true.
Follow Amos as he explores the colorful delights that each brings.

This book is just magical.  Right from the get go, my boys were enthralled by the leprechaun concept.  The illustrations (done by Kay Selvig Flanders) are vibrant and do a magnificent job of bringing little Amos to life.  My boys delight in finding Amos hiding amongst nature on each page.  I love how the author uses rich colors to express moods and things found in nature.  I found the book to be not only helpful in helping children identify colors but also feelings and moods.  Yellow is full of laughter while gray days find one having a hard time getting going.  Just perfectly expressive.  I knew this one was a hit when the boys asked me to read it again immediately after we finished it the first time and then again after the second...We read it three times in a row!  Wonderful story, beautiful pictures and a sure hit!  Pick it up today on Amazon...

I am so pleased to tell you that one lucky RBM reader will win a copy of The Changing Colors of Amos by John Kinyon. Thanks so much to the publisher and here is how to enter...

Right now I'm gray, because that seems to be the color of my surroundings lately. It's bitterly cold (2 degrees ATM), and I have seasonal depression, plus the hubby and kids are ornery and stressing me out lately. So, definitely gray.
