In captivating paintings full of movement and transformation, Tamaki follows a young girl through a year or a day as she examines the colors in the world around her. Egg yolks are sunny orange as expected, yet water cupped in her hands isn't blue like they say. But maybe a blue whale is blue. She doesn't know, she hasn't seen one. Playful and philosophical, They Say Blue is a book about color as well as perspective, about the things we can see and the things we can only wonder at.

"Michi Barall's warm narration of this poetic and imaginative children's book about colors will appeal to young listeners, especially those who continually marvel at the natural world around them. Throughout, Barall's narration echoes the emotion in the text, whether it's a quiet whisper at the end of the day or a joyful call to the sun and sky. Listeners will recognize the enthusiasm in Barall's voice as the world warms in the summer, and her tone of acceptance at fall's chill and winter's embrace. Tamaki's imaginative illustrations are worth seeking out to pair with listening, though they aren't essential to appreciating the meaning behind these moving words.
