LITTLE BLUE and LITTLE YELLOW by Leo Lionni 

Little blue and little yellow share wonderful adventures. One day, they can't find one another. When they finally meet, they are overjoyed. They hug until they become green. As a single green shape, they play and then go, first to Little Blue's house and then to Little Yellow's only to be rejected and unrecognized.


When you read this passage try to emphasize the dialogs between the colorful parents and the green ball!!!
You will notice all the eyes of your pupils gazing at you with a mixing of suffer and curiosity, it's great!!!
