Picture this In the lift-the-flap book Colors Around Us by Shelley Rotner and Anne Woodhull, illus. by Rotner, brilliant photographs charge every page with a surge of color. The spread devoted to orange, for example, features a cluster of photos of carrots, fire, a sunset and other orange things. The minimal text and very simple flaps work in concert: ""ORANGE glows,"" says a flap placed over a photo of jack-o'-lanterns, a glimmer of orange visible under the die-cut letters; and ""Sometimes orange...,"" says another flap that conceals a monarch butterfly.
