Raindrops: A Shower of Colors (Sterling, 2010)
Look - a rainbow of colors is showering down on the animals!  This very simple, beautiful, and innovative concept book shows children how primary colors magically blend to create secondary ones.  Die-cut raindrops with a see-through shaded acetate appear throughout; when the acetates are layered on top of each other, a new color emerges!  So it's easy to see - and understand - how blue and red make purple; red and yellow make orange; blue and yellow make green... and how, all together, they create a gorgeous rainbow!
