Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hurray for Hailstones and Halibut Bones I loved this book of colours and ryhmes. One of my favorite poems was called What is Brown . Mary O'neill's poems give you a feeling in every colour. I discovered this book in my classroom and it has become one of my all time favorite books! The illustrations are beautiful and the book makes me feel great every time I think about it.
