#BookADay: MY BLUE IS HAPPY by Jessica Young and Catia Chien (Candlewick Press​, 2013). This book makes me happy. A lyrical ode to colours, gorgeously illustrated, sure to generate discussions with young readers about what different colours mean to different people. 

"My sister says that blue is sad
   Like a lonely song.

But my blue is happy
   Like my favorite jeans
   And a splash in the pool on a hot day."
