You are very close! The quotation marks are not in the correct places in the print statement.

# this
print("The color ",favorite_color, " is my favorite!")
# instead of this
favorite_color = "skyblue"
print(The color,"favorite_color" is my favorite!)

Notice how the code highlighting differs.

Post back if you need more help. Good luck!!!

Thank you very much Mr Chris
