Red is too busy being concerned with his red things that he doesn’t have time to hang out with Yellow or Blue for collaboration. When everyone gets the message and leaves him alone, though, he realizes that being alone sometimes can also make you lonely. When he reaches out to his friends, they all can make beautiful rainbows.
Mullady weaves a multi-layered story about color mixing, self-esteem, collaboration. Magination includes a lengthy and very helpful parent note about these many facets. They include some great information about developing self-esteem and promoting respect.
