    "Previously I had only seen the movie, but now that I've read the book I'm so glad I did. When you hear the book is better than the movie, that is definitely the case with this one! This book had me hooked from start to finish! I now know why it's a book that is always talked about and why it is so widely recognized!"

    "If a book title with a color in it is important to you, then the perfect solution would be Anne of Green Gables by L. M. Montgomery. Make sure you get one that is properly printed, though. There are a lot of poorly published for a long list of reasons."

    "I wanted to make a color themed basked for my friend's going away party and red is her favorite color. While the book itself, Where the Red Fern Grows, isn't red, it had the color in the title. I also knew that this is one of her favorite books, so it was really a double win."

    "How long has it been since you have read Jack London's White Fang? Do yourself a favor and read it again. I guarantee you will find it as immersive and entertaining now as you did when you were younger. A classic story that shows the power of nature and the battle between charity and cruelty in mankind. Written as a companion piece to the more familiar Call of the Wild, White Fang is the story of a part dog wolf that overcomes hardships to experience peace."

    "While I did enjoy going through this book with my children, it was not always a happy experience. The book started off well enough with the close relationship between the horse and his owner, but things turned dark as the story continued. My children went to smiling at the beginning of the story to weeping tears by the end. They still liked the book by the end, but the horse's suffering really made them feel sympathy for it, which is why I personally enjoyed how the book impacted them. It made them empathize with others and taught them a lesson about mistreatment. This could teach children a lot of things and it is definitely one of the better books with a color in the title."

    "The book didn't interest me despite being written by the "funniest ladies in America" according to Amazon. Perhaps it was my difficulty as a man relating to the two women protagonists or having a different sent of humor. I could see how an older lady could like it, but it wasn't for me."

    "Colors. It's a phase, I guess, but it's also a blessing in disguise. When my Stephanie decided that reading books with colors in the title would give her a more colorful life, I didn't try to argue logic with a 10-year-old. Instead I went to work to curate a selection that would challenge her. I was especially glad to include this old favorite of mine, in the hope she would appreciate how far women have come since it was written, and realize that without vigilance that we could always end up back in that place. And just last night we had a long talk about this, so I guess it's working!"

    "An extraordinary book for its time, Stephen Crane describes the intimate details and the innermost thoughts of a newly minted soldier on the front lines of a Civil War battlefield.

As he wanders about in the aftermath, he struggles with his shame and seeks rationalizations for his cowardice. Was he not the wiser for having fled a battle that was lost? Does not an animal flee a predator when sensing the predator is a superior force? But then Henry discovers that his battalion actually won the battle, and he returns to it after suffering a rather ignominious wound.

All the colors of the rainbow are defined in this book, and then some. Highly recommend to preschoolers learning colors and parents, who want to learn also."

    "I find myself underwhelmed. I wanted to love this book. The premise of overcoming a tragedy like that could give you some wonderful fodder for character development but instead it just fell flat. Everyone seems sort of one dimensional which is wildly disappointing. Most of the time is either about the main character agonizing over some older woman or his dad's disappearance. There is no growth of the characters into someone you either cheer for or against. I think this book missed the mark of what it could have been with that storyline. "
