Content descriptions

General Note:
"A Neal Porter book."
Summary, etc.:
Illustrations and simple, rhyming text celebrate the many shades of blue seen during the relationship of a boy and his dog as the boy grows from a baby to an adult.
How many shades of blue are there? There's the soft blue of a baby's blanket, the ocean blue of a romp in the waves, the chilly blue of a walk in the snow, and the true blue of the bond that exists between children and animals. In this companion to her Caldecott Honor Book Green, award-winning artist Laura Vaccaro Seeger turns her attention to the ways in which color evokes emotion an in doing so tells the story of one special and enduring friendship. -- From dust jacket.
