One by Kathryn Otoshi
Blue is a quiet color. Red's a hothead who likes to pick on Blue. Yellow, Orange, Green, and Purple don't like what they see, but what can they do? When no one speaks up, things get out of hand until One comes along and shows all the colors how to stand up, stand together, and count. As budding young readers learn about numbers, counting, and primary and secondary colors, they also learn about accepting each other's differences and how it sometimes just takes one voice to make everyone count.
On Fairyland's Magic Tree, Mr. Limata reads from "One."
This is not available for free local pickup because it's fulfilled by East Bay Booksellers.
Children's Fairyland has been an Oakland institution since 1950. This is where kids and grown children alike explore its refreshingly low-tech landscape of Storybook sets and playgrounds, tunnels, and mazes. Parents know to check out the magical pumpkin of coffee post haste upon entry, and not to miss the puppet show, the live animals, the Jolley Trolley, and the Wonderland Tunnel. And of course, you must buy a Magic Key to unlock the stories of years past. Learn more about how to support them on their own site, or find more of their fun products right here on Nearby Bay Area.
