Becoming Blue is the story of a blue-colored square who wants to be just like the red-colored circle; it seems like Red has more fun than Blue. Red can make people do things, like stop, but when Blue tries, no one listens to him. Red tells good jokes, but Blue doesn’t do so well. Red gets upset with Blue for trying to copy him, which makes Blue have to figure out what he’s good at and how to be himself. By the end, Red and Blue figure out how to be their best together.
Becoming Blue is about not comparing yourself to other people and finding what makes you happy or what you are best at doing. All people are different from each other, so we can’t be exactly like anyone else. I like that Blue and Red figure out how they can be better friends by being “together” and blending their talents. I felt bad for Blue during the story, but then I felt bad for Red, who didn’t like Blue copying him, and then I felt happy for them both.
