Readers who will like this book: Readers who appreciate and have interest in poetry will enjoy this book. Also, readers who have a passion for nature and enjoy viewing different colors will enjoy this book.

Personal Rating/Response: I rate this book a 4, because different poetic styles are being demonstrated, different colors are being discussed, and pictures are provided of each color. I think some of the pages are too “busy” (have too much detail/words) that can be easily distracting for the reader.

A question I will ask before the reading: What is your favorite color? Where do you see mostly see your favorite color?
