Colors! Take the Dog Out Book 3 is written by Lynne Dempsey. Do you know all of your colors? Do you know how to read and write the words for these colors? That's what this book helps young children do. This is a delightful story in pictures that shows children playing in the garden with their dog. Each page illustrates the children studying different things growing in the garden: red flowers, yellow flowers, orange flowers, blue flowers, purple flowers, green - no that's the grass. There's a little bit of humor added to the story when the colors brown and black are introduced. Brown, oops that's a worm; black, oops that's a spider. The children play in the garden and collect bouquets of all colors of all kinds of plants that grow in the garden. Then they lie in the grass, until one of the children starts to sneeze - allergies. The many colors of the flowers are scattered in the wind like a rainbow from the power of the continuous sneezing - another little bit of humor.

This is a teaching book - teaching young readers how to read the colors. It's an excellent educational resource for parents and teachers alike. Lynne Dempsey has created a beautiful story in pictures with just enough words to make reading fun, funny and educational for young readers. "This is fun," one of the children says and the dog barks, "Bark!" in agreement - more simple words and sentences to help young readers improve their reading skills. This is a beautifully illustrated book that teaches young readers how to recognize and read the words for different colors.
