Mix It Up by Herve Tullet



Release Date - September 16, 2014

Book Review by Tracy Farnsworth

Love, love, love this book! If you want a way to teach children about colors and art, Herve Tullet's Mix It Up is the perfect choice.

Herve Tullet's Mix It Up starts with primary colors and then shows what happens when you mix them. Not only do you watch the paint splotches change colors, but there are pages where the two paint splotches are pressed together so the texture of the paint blobs is apparent. Children are instructed to tip the book and the paint on the page appears to have run.

The heavy cardboard cover will take lots of use. Geared for children ages three to five, I think this is a must-have for parents who want to get their kids thinking about colors, how paint creates art, and how colors blend together.
