What are the primary colors? If you ask a physicist, they will have to ask you a question back. Are you talking about the primary colors of light, used for color addition, or the primary colors of paint, used for color subtraction? Use this book as a resource to learn what the REAL primary colors actually are and to teach it correctly starting in preschool. This book corrects the long held misconception that the primary colors are red, yellow, and blue, which is usually not corrected until, and if, students take physics in high school.

The authors and illustrator, DaNel Hogan and Fabiana Estrella, give permission for formal and informal educators to print copies of this book to use in learning spaces and/or give to students when teaching about the REAL primary colors. In no case, do the authors give permission for the sale of this book.

Print book in color (obviously), double-sided flipped along the SHORT edge. It is recommended you print the book on poly paper for durability but white cardstock also works. Once printed, some assembly is required. Scroll to the bottom for step-by-step directions showing how to assemble the book.
