Saw a bird in a tree.
"It has white feathers,"
He shouted with glee.
Ronny Raccoon said
"Let me play, too!
I see a flower
That's cornflower blue!"

Plays this game every day,
Before the night darkens
And light fades away.
You can play too!
You can play day or night.
Find Chester’s colors
Beginning with white.

Remember playing ‘I Spy’ with your kids in the car? That was fun! (Way more fun than picking up a cell phone and scaring the rest of the drivers to death, by the way). Well this book, a small board book that offers young children a way to look at the vibrant colors of this world, brings back the fun of teaching and reading with your little ones!
As Chester Raccoon walks through his forest world, he starts spotting those beautiful colors of our rainbow that, without them, would just leave us with a black-and-white boring world. From yellow balloons floating through the air to the most beautiful cornflower blue petals in the woods, every color is accounted for. Kids will have a ball picking out the colors they love the most!
The illustrator has done a beautiful job offering pictures of Chester and his friends that will make your kids laugh out loud. And the author has gone back to the A, B, C’s of learning so that your young ones can really soak up and enjoy the rainbow that will forever follow them through their magnificent futures.
Quill says: A small book with a whole lot of beauty!

The book ends with a message for children to play their own version of Chester's game:
"You can play too! You can play day or night. Find Chester's colors, beginning with WHITE."
The colored sketch illustrations by Barbara L. Gibson will make make reader's excited about playing Chester's game on their own. Author Audrey Penn does a wonderful job at creating a set of rhymes that will draw the attention of children and the introduction of new vocabulary is gradual and easy to follow. This book would be great for taking along on a day trip or to the park, kids can try to find similar things like Chester did or you can make up your own game. This book is perfect for ages 2+ and can be used in multiple ways from the parent reading to the child and then as a beginning reader, especially once the child begins to recognize the words.

Illustrated very colorful children's book. Not only good for colors but counting games as well.
TYpical day in the life of Chester the Raccoon and what creatures he comes across and their color. Quite the selection of animals, birds and other natural things.
Book at the end suggests you play the color game and first start with white...
