Joe Arco Iris Y Yo

Joe Arco Iris Y Yo

Eloise likes colors. Her friend Rainbow Joe likes colors too, but Rainbow Joe is blind. So Eloise tells him about the colors she mixes and the fantastic animals she paints. When Rainbow Joe says he can imagine and mix colors too, Eloise is puzzled. How can a blind man see colors? she wonders. One Sunday on their way to church Eloise and Mama run into Rainbow Joe, who tells them he has a surprise for them. When they return, Rainbow Joe starts to play his saxophone. Suddenly colors begin to fly—big red notes, little yellow notes, bright orange notes. The music fills the sky.
