“…This would be a great gift book. As a school librarian, I know how hard it is to find concept books that help teach days of the week, colors, or allow a child to express their own changing moods… This book would be a great addition to your home library as well.”
Barbara Frost, Media Specialist
“Colorful illustrations and beautiful language. This is a book that not only your children will enjoy, but you’ll have fun reading as well! Amos is a sweet little leprechaun that surprisingly enough is not green. In fact, he changes colors each day. This book could be used to teach colors and days of the week, but the poetic language allows it to transcend the typical book that teaches basics by memorization.”
“Tells the story of Amos, a leprechaun, who changes colors as the days change. Cleverly written and crafted. In addition to being an entertaining read (it makes your mouth happy to read it aloud), I was able to use in my classroom as an example in our poetry unit dealing with figurative language and imagery.”
Andrew J. Chance, Professor of Literacy Harding University.

“As I read this sweet story to my little toddler, the characters seemed to jump off of the page. The colors are so wonderfully bright and vivid. It’s exciting to turn the page and see what the next color will be. The rhythm and rhyme of the story are also enjoyable. I highly recommend this book!”
Lisa B, Parent
“My daughter loves this book. We have only had it a few weeks and have read it numerous times!!”
Lori Kimbrow, Homeschool Parent
This is a delightful book written by a school teacher. If you’re looking for a well-written, kid-friendly book, this is it! But make sure you read it with an Irish accent! :) I can’t wait to see what John Kinyon comes up with next.
“Rollicking rhymes, delightful, vibrant illustrations and a main character you’ll want to pluck off the page and hold in your hand. Seeing the world through John Kinyon’s writing is a brief trek from the ordinary into the extraordinary. What a joy!”
