The Day-Glo Brothers

Barton, Chris. The Day-Glo Brothers. illustrated by Tony Persiani. 2009. Charlesbridge. ISBN: 9781570916731.

The Day-Glo Brothers is a really cool book and talks about paint and science. This book is about two boys trying to get new colors that glow in day and dark back when they didn't have fluorescent colors. Then the boys finally get a color started but not an eye-popping cool color. They wanted to take the color and make it in a window but they found out that the sun faded the color. My opinion about this book is that it is boring. This story gave me a headache from all of the black and white. If there were more colors that would be fine. I recommend this book to kids ages 7 and up.
