School Library Journal - 05/01/2014 PreS-Gr 2—In this creatively illustrated picture book, the color green comes to life in a varied and substantial way through brilliant text and mixed-media artwork. Readers are escorted through poetic text to try and guess what the great big green is. "The thing is green," leads readers into page after page of art that has skillfully been crafted by scanned in paintings, fabrics, sandpaper, velvet, a green marble, and a wide assortment of other unusual materials. The author describes many natural elements that can be green like "tornado-sky greens" and "ocean-floor greens" and "your watermelons-sparkling-in-the-sun-greens." As this well-written book ends, the great big green thing is revealed with pomp and circumstance that will delight and encourage a second reading. A solid general purchase for most collections.—Nancy Jo Lambert, Ruth Borchardt Elementary, Plano, TX - Copyright 2014 Publishers Weekly, Library Journal and/or School Library Journal used with permission.
