A Color Clown Comes to Town: 10/05/06
Sean borrowed A Color Clown Comes to Town from school. It's another of the "Word Window" books. What bloody idiot decided children are too stupid to know what a book is? Why does everyone of these books have to start with a definition of a book as a "word window"?
Anyway, this book is supposed to teach children about colors. This annoying clown comes to town with open paint buckets on his head and starts pestering a girl to paint with him. She agrees but only for certain things. Later he teaches her how to mix secondary colors and she makes a rainbow.
Since this book purports to be "educational" I would expect it to get the order of the rainbow correct. Once red is placed in the middle (between yellow and green) and twice purple is put after red at the top of the rainbow. Argh!
Unfortunately Sean currently adores this book and I suspect he'll be bringing it home a few more times. Since I love him and don't believe in censorship, I will read it to him again if he asks.
