Mixed is a fantastic book to read aloud to preschoolers and elementary-age children. Kids will enjoy the engaging story, the playful illustrations, and the unique lesson about mixing colors. Better yet, Mixed provides parents with the perfect opportunity to discuss diversity and inclusion with their children. The Red, Yellows and Blues always got along, until the day that the Reds declared that they were better than the others, setting in motion a balkanization of the color world. Suddenly the different shades didn't want to mix, each one asserting its preeminence. Until the day, that is, that a Yellow and a Blue fell in love, got married, and produced Green - an entirely new color. The beauty and novelty of this new hue convinced the existing colors that mixing wasn't so bad, leading to a far more diverse, colorful city... In the beginning there were three colors. Red, yellow and blue all lived in perfect harmony. Reds were loud, yellows were bright and blues were just cool. When the three colors start to have conflict with each other, they decide to segregate. All the yellows have their own part of the city just like the reds and blues, no mixing allowed! That is until one day a yellow and blue fall in love, they don't let others ideas of mixing get in the way of them being together. Gradually more and more colors come to the realization that their colors should not separate them but should be widely celebrated with everyone! Soon their world is filled with all beautiful new colors such as violet and orange.The company initially created a solution to help high school groups and students create their own yearbooks.  It launched its photo book editor tool in 2009 providing consumers with a way to create fully customizable photo books .  In 2010, Mixbook added calendars and photo cards to its product line.
At first, there were only three colors: the Reds, the Yellows, and the Blues. The Reds were the loudest and most opinionated, the Yellows the brightest and most cheerful, and the Blues were the coolest by far. At first, they all lived in harmony, until a disagreement broke out about which color was the best. The negativity spread to every citizen in the city, and soon the colors had segregated themselves, building walls to keep those different from them out. But one day a very special Blue met a very special Yellow, and found that their differences complimented each other. Despite the disapproval of others, the two mixed together their lives, getting married and creating a new color: Green. She has a mix of her parents’ traits, and yet is a color all her own as well. The other colors begin to take notice, and realize that by reaching out, accepting, and loving those different from them, they are creating a stronger and infinitly more interesting world.
Note: A copy of this book was provided to The Baby Bookworm by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.) I enjoyed this book because of the different approach it took to our societies issues. I had seen many books about segregation/desegregation as well as books on race, but never one like this. Because the characters are not humans, it allows the reader to have a different view of seeing differences in others.
