What color is God? A large gathering and a calming rain leads a child to find the surprising answer in this story. While learning the answer, the child discovers one of the greatest messages of all.

The Color of Me is a beautifully illustrated children's book that tells of the many colors of God’s creation and the goodness of the colors. McDunn delightfully describes the value of all colors as she recounts how God created the Earth and identifies the effects of creation. Children will relate to the concepts of colors and coloring in The Color of Me as they learn values of acceptance, appreciation, and respect for everything that God made. Perfect for parents and educators to read to children and for early readers to read themselves. For children ages four to eight.

Linda L. McDunn is the director of human resources for the Sisters of the Order of St. Benedict in St. Joseph, Minnesota, and a consultant/trainer in management and communication.

Reviews

. . . filled with beautiful, vibrantly coloured illustrations and a lilting story that flows from page to page.
Prairie Messenger

By the time I read that ‘God created fish of color' I found myself smiling, both inside and outside. This delightful book is a veritable litany that proclaims the ‘good news’ of God’s creation. It is a prayer of thanksgiving. With masterful simplicity, the author teaches the profoundest of truths. Children will revel in the wonder of it all, and adults will for a few moments return to the innocence of childhood.

This is a warm, well-written book that celebrates the goodness of God's creation.

A splendid investment in family spiritual nutrition.

A painter uses colors to create a work of art. Linda McDunn used colors to create a work of literature –one describing God's work of creation.
St. Cloud Visitor

This delightful picture book celebrates the splendor of God's creation in its diversity of colors, people, and creatures.

Highly recommended for public libraries, academic education collections, and parish libraries for ages 4 and up.

A sweet story of the creation of people of many colors. What child doesn't love a rainbow? Why not teach them that we live it every day!

. . . vivid full-page illustrations accentuate the simple story's lesson about the equality of all races in the eyes of God.
