Red and Black (Parody of Les Miserables)

(Great for teaching little kids about colors)

It is time for us to
know which colors are which.
Don’t we want to embrace
all the colors that make up the world?
Have you asked of yourself
what’s the color of hay?
Is it red, black, or blue,
yellow, green, or gray?
The colors of the world
you need to know today!

Red – the color of a rose.
Black – the color of a bear.
Red – the color of my clothes.
Black – the color of my hair!
