In this lively picture book, children discover a world of colors all around them: red are spices and swirling skirts, yellow is masa and tortillas, and brown are churros and homemade chocolate. Many of the featured objects are Latino in origin and all are universal in appeal, with rich, boisterous illustrations and a fun-to-read rhyming text. Colors are written in both English and Spanish.

Rhymes to boot... ."
