Mr. Rabbit and the Lovely Present by Charlotte Zolotow, Maurice Sendak (Illustrator)
The little girl in the story needs to find a birthday present for her mother and is in need of assistance. Mr. Rabbit, who has a big heart, offers to help out the young girl even though his ideas aren't that good. Eventually, between the two of them, they come up with the perfect gift for her mother - the gift of color. They offer the gift through objects that are different colors: yellow - banana, purple - grapes, green - pears, etc. The illustrations use soft mute colors which are appealing to children.
