Roy G. Biv is Mad at Me Because I LOVE PINK! is a delightful story of friendship and discovery that will spark the imagination of young girls and boys everywhere. The story is of a girl named Genevieve, whom like most girls her age live in a Pink World. After a rain shower, Genevieve was splashing around in the puddles, this is when she meets Roy G. Biv and he is Mad at her because she loves Pink. ""Who are you, Genevieve asks and what business is it to you"" Roy was happy to share the origins of his name. Roy G. Biv is an an acronym for the sequence of the hues found in the rainbow RED, ORANGE, YELLOW, GREEN, BLUE, INDIGO, VIOLET, and Pink is not in the rainbow. Genevieve is a confident, witty girl and not easily persuaded by Roy who is trying to show her the beauty of all the colors of his rainbow. Roy said to Genevieve "" there are many colors in the spectrum, I think you'd like them if you met them."" Genevieve is not easily convinced and not budging from her devotion to the color Pink. Genevieve exclaims, ""While Yellow is catchy and bright, I still like Pink and I don't want to fight"". Roy G. Biv pushes on with his desire to have Genevieve appreciate all his colors by showing her beautiful illustrations in bold colors such as, Big Red Fire Trucks, Orange Butterflies and Green Trees that appeal to girls and boys. Their relationship is playful and rhythmically magical making this fun to read and learn for kids and parents as we route for Roy and wonder if he can convince Genevieve to think beyond PINK!

 REVIEW
This story  is about a little girl, Genevieve who loves pink. But there are so many other colors. It is a learning lesson and fun on top of it.  A great way for the young ones to learn their colors.  Roy G. Biv stands for the colors:
R stands for RED
O stands for ORANGE
Y stands for YELLOW
G. stands for GREEN
B  stands for BLUE
I stands for INDIGO
V stands for VIOLET
Roy G. Biv gets angry at Genevieve for obsessing over the color pink.  The story tells the lesson, not only about colors but really looking at the world and the beautiful colors all around us. Change can be hard sometimes but change can be good. A wonderful book for children to learn all about their colors and be open to all colors, not just one.  Genevieve still loves pink but she now sees the beautiful colors all around her.

I received this complimentary book from the author, Nancy Guettier for my unbiased view of the book.
No other compensation took place.

I would give this book 5 RAINBOWS.
