In this playful picture book homage to artist Vincent van Gogh, a house gets a brilliantly colorful paint job. Vincent is ready to paint his house. The only problem is choosing the color. He thinks white would be nice . . . until the spider convinces him that red is better. Red looks great, but the bird thinks blue would be best. Vincent likes blue too. "Stop!" says the mouse, because the mouse prefers green. Before long, Vincent has a list of requests: the termite wants orange, the caterpillar loves yellow and the ladybug insists on purple. With a little creativity and a lot of color Vincent does a brilliant job!

A terrific book for exploring colors and hues, this picture book has an artist (you know the famous one named Vincent?) trying to decide what color to paint his house. A new animal appears on each page trying to persuade Vincent to use their favorite color, and he considers each one before creating a masterpiece that everyone loves in the end. Perfect for storytimes themed around Colors, Painting, Houses, or Artists.
