Recommended Age, Grade, and Reading Levels

  • Age: 3 to 7
  • Grade: p to 2


A fun, rhyming read-aloud celebrating diversity, and a tool for teaching young readers the names of all the colours of the rainbow.

Blue's my favourite colour!
It really is the best.
I love my lucky socks.
Blue's better than the rest.

What's your favourite colour? When a teacher asks her students this question, one little girl just can't decide! Enter her vibrant imagination as she considers every colour and all the reasons that she loves the whole rainbow. Orange glows through autumn leaves, but pink is the colour of sunsets and cotton candy! And green shines all around the garden — how will she ever choose just one favourite colour?
In her debut picture book, author Lindsay Ruck joins artist Bryanna Chapeskie to create a stunning poem that illustrates why being unique is always something to celebrate.
