About the Author

Aaron Becker is the Caldecott Honor-winning author-illustrator of the Journey trilogy and of A Stone for Sascha, as well as You Are Light, the acclaimed companion book to My Favorite Color. His favorite color is bluish-green. And reddish-orange. And also yellow. He lives in western Massachusetts with his family.

Reviews

The engineers behind 2019's wondrous You Are Light return with another innovative approach to color primers...The basic premise--picking your favorite color--is enough to engage any toddler or preschool audience, but the mind-boggling depth of beauty and bookmaking ingenuity puts this offering on another level.
--Booklist (starred review)

In this exuberant follow-up to his outstanding You Are Light (2019), Becker returns to the glorious medium of translucent vinyl inserts that allow colors to shine and meld...The sturdy translucent inserts work together magnificently, layering to create an unexpected richness of color. No matter what your favorite color, this rainbow ode is sure to brighten your day.
--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

By the end, there are various shades from different color families on the same pages ("And the dew-dappled colors of sweet, ripe fruits"), and eventually the narrator admits defeat: "I can only have one favorite color? Hmm...Impossible!" Equally impossible, for many viewers, will be picking a "favorite" in this eye-catching and mind-expanding color concept book.
--The Horn Book

Which hue is best? Die-cut holes filled with a rainbow assortment of translucent squares let kids choose.
