Vincent Paints His House

Vincent Paints His House by Tedd Arnold is a picture book I came across and enjoyed.  Vincent wants to paint his house, but every time he chooses a color, some animal suggests another color.  This repetitive book is great for kindergarten students or children learning English.  There are some elements that would be interesting to older students as well.  Each page shows some more advanced words for the colors such as amber, emerald, olive, and ebony.  The last page shows Vincent's house completed, as well as VanGogh's Starry Night as the background.

We got that book out of the library last week. It is a fun read.
