Sassy and intrepid Monica loves to paint with a rainbow of colors. One day she wonders, "What color is a kiss?" She paints items and animals she knows in every color she can think of, hoping to discover the answer. Monica sees her world in every color of the rainbow, but this question nags at her. She paints and paints, hoping to discover the answer. Charming text and vibrant illustrations help Monica and her mother demonstrate that love comes in any and every color.

Read an Excerpt
My name is Monica. When I ride my bicycle, I am faster than the wind! I like swallows, strawberry cake, and listening to stories that my mother tells me. At home I take care of my plants on the balcony, because I love watering them and telling them nice things so they will grow quickly.
