Do you remember how we would soil ourselves playing in the garden, fighting to take our favorite ride? We have even painted the walls of our home, drawing all sorts of imaginative and hypothetical characters. We would get scolded for being a little mischievous. And would be rewarded for giving an extra hand at our parents' work. Those were the fleeting years of childhood when everything seemed fun and frolic.

Reading What's Your Favorite Color? by Amber L Lassiter brought back the nostalgia of those golden days when we would eagerly wait for that last bell for school to disperse. This colorful book revolves around a wonderful little girl, Amber, who loves to draw and knows a way to impress everyone around her.

One day, Mrs. Lassiter assigns her students the task of wearing one article of their favorite color. Then they will have to draw something using the color that is special to them. As soon as Amber steps in her classroom, she realizes that she has forgotten her color palette. Now, she has to burrow the colors from her classmates to finish her drawing.

What strategy would Amber use to ask the colors from her friends without revealing her favorite one? Is she smart enough for her age to keep her dearest color unrevealed till the end? How would she workaround to complete her painting?

This book has successfully created that playfulness through the storyline to keep the children engrossed. There are logical questions at the end of each chapter that will put the kid's analytical and creative thinking to test.

What I liked most about this book are the beautiful illustrations to keep the children hooked through the story. Parents can read this book to their kids at bedtime and ask questions to educate them.

I only found two errors in this book. Another round of editing will smoothly fix them. Although the author says this book is for 1-3 grade children, I found many words in this book a little advanced for the targeted audience.

I would happily give this book 4 out of 4 stars as there was nothing to dislike about it. Children will find themselves immersed in the colorful world that this book has successfully created through illustrations and lovely storyline.

This children's book reminds me of my favorite book when I was a child. Everyone who wants to feel nostalgic should read this one. Great review, as always!
