Review

 "This attractive, approachable book offers a variety of teachable themes, including basic art-themed storytime. — Booklist  -- Booklist ― February 15, 2017

"Sala’s illustrations demonstrate how varying color, line thickness, and intensity can indicate different
emotions. (What’s actually being celebrated here is more akin to abstract expressionism
than simply coloring.) For children who equate drawing ability with
artistic ability, this book will open new and more accessible avenues for creative
expression. Lehrhaupt ends the book on the question, “What colors are you?”—
an open-ended invitation for readers to explore the color wheel and look past
their own self-perceived artistic limitations.' The Horn Book magazine -- Horn Book Magazine ― March/April 2017

"A young boy provides examples of his drawings to prove that he cannot draw, and chooses instead to express himself through color. “My puppies look like mush./My cars look like lumps,” he says. But with color he can reveal his feelings and impressions: yellow for happy, red for angry, black for scary ... There are splashes of bright yellow and drips of “sad” blue. A rainbow of colors bursts from the boy’s hand to indicate that he can have several feelings at the same time. “I’m a whole jumble of things…a colorful masterpiece,” he declares as his Technicolor image fills the page. Encouraging experimentation with color (“What colors are you?”) ..." School LIbrary Journal -- School Library Journal ― March 2017 --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
