Did you see my rainbow segment on Monday?  Here is the link if you would like to see it... http://www.myfoxtwincities.com/story/22783439/roygbiv-with-jenni-swenson
While I've had time off this summer, I've been adding to my collection of flannelboard stories.  Any preschool teacher will tell you that 3-5 year old children just love them.
It takes just the right book to make a flannel board and this book, MONSTERS LOVE COLORS  by Mike Austin was a perfect choice. http://www.amazon.com/Monsters-Love-Colors-Mike-Austin/dp/006212594X

Color mixing is a endlessly fascinating subject to preschoolers.  The monsters in this story scribble colors together to color their grey monster friend.

When I use this at preschool we will definitely mix paint together when we are through reading.

The illustrations couldn't be cuter.  I can't wait to read it to my preschoolers in the fall!
