Why Am I Blue?
The endearing, colorful characters of Why Am I Blue? are brought to life through the animated storytelling of Kevin Clemons and the illustrations of Suganthi Manickam. This children’s book tells the tale of the beloved colors and their creation. Sweetly narrated, a better-suited bedtime story would be hard to find. Blue is the delightfully unassuming protagonist, patiently waiting his turn while all the other colors get picked to play their role in the world. However, as the roles diminish, Blue questions his part, and finally learns how truly important he is.
Children will enjoy the romp with the colors as they lead themselves through and to self-discovery. And where would they be without the illustrations, which capture the livelihood of the colors. Why Am I Blue? teaches self confidence and individuality. Perhaps this is a conventional story, but it still gives readers a heads-up for up-and-coming children’s author Clemons and illustrator Manickam.
