  • Episode Description
  • "Spicy Hot Colors" Cleo has a special surprise for her cubs, a piñata! It's very colorful and full of tasty meaty treats. She also reads them the book Spicy Hot Colors, written by Sherry Shahan and illustrated by Paula Barragán. The cubs enjoy the piñata, but find it difficult to break open. "Yesterday I Had the Blues" When a huge rainstorm starts up outside the library, it evokes various emotions. Lionel has the "reds" because he can't make his soccer game. Leona, however, is enjoying books and has the "pinks." Theo reads everyone a book called Yesterday I Had the Blues by Jeron Ashford Frame and illustrated by R. Gregory Christie. Everyone agrees that the story, about a little girl who explores various moods, makes them feel golden. Segments throughout the first story focus on words starting with the letter 'c' and color words. Words describing feelings are explored in the second story.moreless
