      A simple story of a family deciding what colours to paint their house to compliment the changing colours of the garden throughout the seasons. Talks about making colours from primary colours and shows a spinner you can make. We loved the 50s illustrations, lovely book.

      Presented as a story of how a family decides which colour to paint their newly purchased but in need of some tender loving care house, Roger Duvoisin's The House of Four Seasons is a fun and engaging basic introduction to colours, and not only the primary colours of blue, red and yellow, but also how the three primary colours combined in different manners will then make other further colour hues (how yellow and blue make green, red and yellow make orange, blue and red make purple, and red, yello [...]

      When a family of four move into an old house, the can't agree on the color to paint it. Their solution is to paint each side differently- one side to for each season. When the only paint colors available are red, yellow, and blue, can the family find a way to paint their House of Four Seasons?•This is a wonderfully colorful book that can help teach children about primary and secondary colors. I liked the use of creative thinking. The whole book felt positive and friendly.

      Story is about an indecisive family who are aiming to paint their new-to-them old house. Eventually they decide on white with accent colors.The illustrations here are the thing. Gorgeous vibrant colors, and the feeling that all the compositions were done in pieces of cellophane overlying spare black ink drawings. Also, apparently this family parks their car out of sight, and as a child reading this book over and over again, I always wanted a house that would have no driveway.

      This reminds me why I hate "classic" books. Woof.

      A family of four buys a dilapidated house, fix it up, and decide what to paint it. (This is a kid's book where kids are shown matter-of-factly doing chores around the house with mom and dad!) The hardware store has fewer shades of paint than the family wants; nonetheless, dad is undaunted because he's going to introduce the rest of the family (yes, mom, too, seems to be as clueless and her 6-year-old-kids) to color theory! A fun and imaginative introduction to the primary and secondary colors. ( [...]
