SUMMARY OF THE MENTOR TEXT:

At first, there were only three colors: red, blue and yellow. The reds were the loudest, the yellows were the brightest, and the blues were the coolest. They all got along until the reds started to say there were the best. This made everyone upset and the three colors started fighting. It was decided that each color would live in different parts of the city.

One day Blue and Yellow become friends. Blue liked how happy he felt with Yellow and the Yellow like how calm Blue made him feel. The two colors mixed, everything started to change. At first, the other colors were not happy, they didn’t think colors should mix. Yellow and Blue made an all-new color together, green. Everyone was amazed by green and started mixing as well. Soon there was a brand new city full of new colors.
