Midas wants everything to be his favorite color—yellow! He chooses yellow clothes, eats yellow foods, and uses only the yellow paint at his easel. But when he impulsively paints his beloved green Dinoboo, Midas discovers that too much of a good thing is a big mess! Joan Holub’s carefully crafted text is brought to life by Leslie Patricelli’s famously humorous illustrations. Includes a summary of the original Midas’s Wish myth at the end.
Make a Wish, Midas! by Joan Holub is an adorable myth retelling in her really fun preschool Mini Myths board book collection. My daughter Natalie is three and she had so much fun reading this book! She loved pointing out the different items that Midas was painting yellow. She tried to tell him that it wasn’t good to make everything yellow. This is a fun story that she enjoys reading at least once a day. I really enjoy reading it with her. The book is perfect for her age group and even a little younger. She loves the beautiful illustrations. I like that the back page includes the myth information. It gives us more info into the inspiration for the story and helps teach Natalie about myths at the same time. This is a collection of books that we adore and will read all of them.
