When Red starts picking on Blue, things get out of hand—until One shows the colors how they can count on each other.
Blue is a quiet color. He enjoys gazing at clouds and going with the flow. Sometimes, he wishes he was sunny, like Yellow, or bright like Green. But overall, he likes being Blue—except when he’s with Red. Red is a hothead who likes to pick on Blue. Yellow, Orange, Green, and Purple don’t like what they see, but what can they do?
When no one speaks up, things get out of hand—until One comes along. He shows the other colors how they can count on each other. In the end, when just one stands up for what’s right, it makes it easier for everyone else to stand with them.
One is a story about how bullying doesn’t go away when it’s ignored—it only gets worse. And yet, when just one person takes a stand, it makes it easier for others to take a stand with them. The narrative touches on themes of individuality, gentleness, kindness, and bravery. Written and illustrated by Kathryn Otoshi. Published by Ko Kids Books.
