White is for Blueberry

I hate nights like this....can't sleep! Finally decided to get up and be productive instead of counting sheep. Too much on my mental to-do list, I guess. The kids are all excited because there's a chance of freezing rain on Friday-for Texas that means everything shuts down! We haven't had a snow day in 5 years and that one was closing early because of flurries. The weather here has just been so crazy. We have 70 degree days and then one that's 40 degrees. My poor German Shepherd is shedding so much-I think her fur is very confused!

Anyway, I love this book for thinking about things from a different angle:

White is for blueberry....when you see the blossoms that come before the berry. It's a quick read, but one that makes you think. I asked the kids to come up with their own ideas and it was actually very challenging for them. 

White is for orange, because of the white stuff.

Red is for cheese in the cheese wheel.

Grey is for a pencil, because of the grey stuff (lead).

She was talking about black and white photos vs. color

Gray is for penguin


  1. I'll have to look for that book! It reminds me of the "Q is for Duck" book. Cool idea!

  2. I'm not familiar with that title-will have to check it out! :)
