First Steps: Letters, Numbers, Colors, Opposites
First Steps: Letters, Numbers, Colors, Opposites
This book of concepts covers numbers, the alphabet, colours and opposites. It contains amusing pictures of animals and children, including a toddler who appears throughout the book. John Burningham has twice won the Kate Greenaway Medal, for "Borka: The Adventures of a Goose With No Feathers" (1964) and for "Mr Grumpy's Outing" (1970). He has also won the Emil/Kurt Maschler Award for "Granpa" (1984). His other books include the four titles in the "Rhymetime" series and "Harvey Slumfenburger's Christmas Present".

So much to learn, so little time! Join the mild-looking little boy protagonist as he learns the ABCs (alligator, bear, cow); numbers (1 through 10 children hanging from a tree--and back to zero when a tiger shows up); colors (John Burningham's vibrant oranges, purples, and greens will be stamped on the reader's memory for life!); and opposites (our hero holds up an elephant to illustrate heavy, and then practically floats away demonstrating how light his balloon is). This award-winning author-illustrator excels at depicting subtle, witty expressions, whether that of a zebra politely examining the boy's striped socks or that of an alligator showing the difference between open and shut (uh-oh, there goes our hero!). Lovely, quirky colored-ink and colored-pencil illustrations invite the young reader to sit down and stay awhile and maybe learn a thing or two along the way. Burningham has written and illustrated many whimsical childhood favorites, including Cloudland. (Baby to preschool) --Emilie Coulter

Color Specs
Color Specs
Complementary Colors - Colors that lie opposite each other on the wheel are complementary. The complementary color for yellow, for example, is violet. For orange, it's blue. Pairing a color with its complementary color will make both colors more vibrant. Analogous Colors - Colors that lie beside each other on the color wheel are analogous. They can be mixed without clashing because they share a common color or hue. Monochromatic Colors - Each single color on the color wheel has a variety of shades. The color violet, for example, can range from a deep eggplant to a light lavender. Using various tones of a single color creates a monochromatic design. Triad Colors - A combination of three colors that are equally spaced on the color wheel is known as a triad. These combinations can create a bold, yet balanced decorating palette. Warm Colors - Half of the color wheel--from red to yellow-green--is considered warm. These colors appear as if they are advancing toward you, appearing nearer. They can help create a warm, cozy atmosphere. Cool Colors - The other half--from green to red-violet--is considered cool. These colors appear to recede, as though the space is expanding. Green and violet may appear to advance or recede, depending on the colors used with them.

The DLP TV stopped working the other day, and the culprit turned out to be a shattered color wheel. This is the replacement, which I noticed didn't look too much like a filter at all. That is, until I shined a bright, white light through it. Turns out they are quite niftily engineered. They are a mirrored filter. The red, for instance, passes the red, and reflects back the blue & green components- so a red color *thru* the wheel results in a cyan-colored reflection. Similarly, blue and yellow are opposites, and magenta and green are opposites. So, you get optical opposites on opposite sides of the wheel. I'm shining the white light from the left side.
