little blue and little yellow – Leo Lionni

Little Blue and Little Yellow are friends.  They do everything together.  One day when Little Blue goes out to find Little Yellow to play, he can’t find him.  Little Blue looks everywhere for his friend.  When they find each other they are delighted and give each other a hug.  To their surprise they turn green.  They play together until it is time to go home.  When they get home, their parents do not recognize them.  The colours cry and cry little blue and yellow tears.  Finally they pull themselves together back into their blue and yellow selves.  They rush home to Blue’s house.  His parents hug them and understand what has happened.  They bring the news to Yellow’s parents and the children play until supper time.
