Yellow & Pink Reviews
I've waited to read this book for SO LONG! I finally found a copy here on Amazon that I could afford. It's wonderful. This book will be read to every little child who visits and wants a lap and a story. It's a true treasure.
No one will be insulted by this "children's" story. As adults, the conversation of Yellow and Pink is a conversation we have all heard about and contemplated at one time. For young ones, they will delight in the simple, yet thought provoking plot.
One of family's favorites! This is a wonderful book that my 6 children all enjoyed and we have read many times. It is about 2 wooden toys wondering how they came to be. One of them took more of a creationist approach and the other a more evolutionary approach as they discussed and pondered. Great book on many levels. But not preachy. I don't even really know what the authors worldview is.
Was so pleased to find this gem as an ebook! Found the hardcopy at a library many years ago. Tried to find a copy online to buy since we enjoyed it so much, only to find it was out of print and used copies were very expensive.
It's a cute book but was so simplistic about a complex topic. I get that kids books often simplify things but this seemed dishonest.
This book is astonishingly good and yet it's virtually unknown.

Steig has written a number of children's books we've enjoyed over the years. This one depicts intelligent design in story form, neatly illustrating the improbability of art achieved through random chance.
