If there was yang to Eric Carle’s yang, then this would be What Comes Darkly Thieves by Ben Rubin. It has a folk tale fable quality to it but with an openness and makes a child ask over and over again, “Why?”
The Smiley Book of Colors by Ruth Kaiser is a clever picture book that finds smiley faces in every day objects. It also teaches colors. What I love about it is that it also teaches kids to see, REALLY see, like an artist. Is there a smiley face lurking about? Probably! You just have to see it.

This is not the case for New Shoes for Sylvia!
