When I Colored in the World

We rated this book:


Iranian poet and author of a variety of children’s books Ahmadreza Ahmadi shares a world no one has yet lived in his visionary book, When I Colored in the World. He tells the story of a child whose mother gives a box of colorful crayons and an eraser with which she can redesign the world. She uses them to create a universe free of ailments, unpleasant emotions, and tragedies

She uses her green crayon to produce fields of wheat to be harvested. She cures boredom with a sky blue crayon, evolving the nature of play worldwide. She magically erases war and replaces it with peace. One peril at a time is eradicated by this thoughtful child, unveiling a more hopeful place in which to live.

Ahmadi sends a powerful message of hope to young children today through this creative, inspiring story! Though When I Colored in the World is relatively short, its words speak loudly, magnifying messages of optimism and inspiration across its colorful pages.

It can be used by parents and teachers alike to promote altruism and insight with children old enough to understand the difficult realities of life. Additionally, Almadi’s work can be used as a springboard for sparking meaningful classroom discussions and individual and group projects among elementary school-aged students. When I Colored in the World is worthy of being added to the library of any youngster parent or teacher. It is a treasurable piece of literature!
