The BookViral Review: Deanna Hart brings us a charming story of acceptance and diversity in ‘Blue is the Only Colour in the Rainbow’. Complete with engaging and high-quality professional illustrations, this beautiful book invites children to use their imaginations, explore the world around them, and gain a better understanding of themselves and others.

With a relatable character, Jasmine, who only likes the colour blue and is insistent that everything around her, including the food she eats, is only blue, Hart recognises the right of choice, even for children. However, her tale expands to show resolution, when Jasmine is given a red Monkey, which she at first rejects. That night, in a dream, Jasmine is taken by the little red monkey on a colourful adventure to the land of Prisma, where she learns to appreciate that all colours are beautiful.

Hart finely balances elements of plot, characterisation, setting, style and theme to create a compelling story developmentally appropriate for her young audience. Throughout the text, she presents a variety of elements to think about, to question and to consider, thus helping the reader to explore their own feelings and concepts in relation to the wider world and enabling them to enrich their values, beliefs, imagination and creativity.

Chrish Vindhy’s delightful and captivating illustrations work with the text to create a rounded-out story, which provides plenty of opportunity for discussion, as the consistent and repetitive language serves to extend and enrich the vocabulary and contribute to linguistic development.

From a didactic perspective, ‘Blue is the only Colour in the Rainbow’ is a great example of how teachable lessons and concepts can be relayed effectively through literature and is firmly recommended.
