While Seeger's book "Green" spent more time exploring various shades of the color green, this book tells a complete story from start to finish while also highlighting various blue hues. It is a poignant tale of a boy and his dog, told through beautiful two-page spreads highlighting different scenes in their lives together. From the baby blue blanket they share when the boy is a toddler to the blue feeling the young man has when his dog passes away years later, readers will explore how colors and emotions are so often linked together. A beautiful book and story to share.

This book tells the story of a boy and his dog in simple, two word phrases. A first glance reading will suggest this book is about different shades of blue and things that can be found in the world around us that are blue. A more careful look at the beautiful illustrations tells the story of a boy and puppy who grow up together and how life may bring changes but their love and friendship for one another is constant.
