I’m pleased to share this beautiful and colorful book with you today! Supriya Kelkar‘s sweet tale of a young boy named Harpreet who moves with his family will relate to so many youngsters.
The Many Colors of Harpreet Singh, out from Sterling just this September, introduces readers to Harpreet and his patkas. He choses his patka color depending on his feelings. But his patka remains white once he moves with his family and starts a new school. Harpreet is lonely. Until one day he finds a yellow hat with a smile – and the girl to whom it belongs.
“Yes, Harpreet Singh loved his colors. He had one for every occasion. Even for just handing out with a FRIEND.”
Alea Marley‘s digital illustrations are really superb! The characters’ eyes are just so telling, and I especially love the snow scene and the variety of page layouts within the text.
This children’s picture book should definitely be on your shelves! A great story that blends friendship, emotions, and the Sikh culture, The Many Colors of Harpreet Singh will delight readers and earns four stars. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
