Open Your Eyes

Let's look at a very cute children's book, Open Your Eyes which was published in 1964. I bought this at a thrift store several years ago when my daughter was younger, but I like it as much as she did. The illustrations are so charming.

It is a simple story of two brothers stuck inside while it is raining. They try to think of things that are different colors. The text rhymes too.

And who doesn't like a big, smiling sun? Nothing like a happy ending.

I hope you have a sunny day!


  1. What an adorable book! It is great to encourage a child's love of color, and outdoor play! The sun was definitely shining at our house yesterday, a little too much for me so soon! Thanks for a great sunny post. Tina

  2. I love the illustrations too I also have a copy! (great minds think alike)
