Learn to count and learn about color. The CMY color system - with Cyan Magenta and Yellow as primary colors - is taught in fun color lessons in the form of silly counting rhymes and bold full-color illustrations. There are different editions for US or UK/International English. Wacky friends help you count And teach what color's all about It's color fun time In number and rhyme Little characters - from one arty mouse to twelve smiling crocs - take children around the color wheel. Bear and bug rhymes further explain the colors brown and black, and additional rhymes explain shades, tints, tones, hue and the names for colors. Small children will enjoy listening to the color rhymes, early readers will enjoy reading them, and teachers and parents can refer to the color theory rhymes to explain the system to young children. Each rhyme is also repeated in a plain prose sentence. There is a matching coloring book too, as well as free coloring and craft activity downloads and a MP3 audio file. The addition of the coloring book makes a perfect side-by-side pair with either the print or digital main book. There are Kindle versions too: as a teacher's textbook and an abridged children's version. The CMY system is a good color system to teach to young children, as it is used extensively in our modern world of commercial printing, paint mixes and inks for desktop printers. Indie authors too, have had to come to grips with it! The quality of color printing we enjoy today, came about with the introduction of the CMYK system. Black was added to give depth to CMY color images (it is indicated by the letter K as can be seen in print cartridges). Color theory is a fascinating part of both the art and science worlds. Famous artists, philosophers and scientists ranging from Goethe to Mansell, and Da Vinci to Newton have all grappled with the qualities of color and light. There are additional Anni Arts products and teaching materials, like posters and art aprons, that feature the little characters in the rhymes. All make great gifts and learning aids.

Reviews

I am absolutely in love with Color Count! Color Count uses the CMY color theory(using cyan, magenta, and yellow instead of red, yellow, and blue), which I have not encountered since I was a college student in 2005. As a teacher, I understand the importance of teaching today's "digital native" in a way that makes sense. Students are highly aware of the colors available in ink cartridges (cyan, magenta, yellow) and it only makes sense to teach students color theory using CMY instead of an antiquated red, yellow, blue color theory. I currently teach art to students with visual impairments and deaf students that are in elementary and middle school. I'm excited to share this with all of my students because they will enjoy the new color vocabulary (e.g. cobalt, lime, and ruby), beautiful images that showcase the colors (along with a fun rhyming story), and large text that is easy for my students with visual impairments to read. I also ordered the coloring book that has large images of the illustrations from Color Count that will provide practice using the CMY colors that I plan to use with newer sets of Crayola Markers. This will provide an opportunity for me to tie an art lesson directly to a technology and assistive technology lesson! Review from the Anni Arts teacher's testing team.
