“These sturdy board books with rounded corners are solid choices.” School Library Journal
“vivid [and] energetic . . . This near-wordless romp encourages tots to pick up some paints of their own.” Kirkus Reviews
“A great title to encourage toddlers' interactive play, this board book introduces six basic colors, one on each double-page spread. . . . A riot. . . . Kids will want to move from the book to the real world and name the colors all around them.” Booklist
“The thick pages and clever artwork are a user-friendly way to educate pre-school children about basic colors.” Tucsoncitizen.com
“The Go! Go! Bobo board books are bright delights, filled with pictures of a bouncy baby zipping through the air amid a whole series of shapes or colors. Basher manages to make the simple books extra-attractive in several ways. . . . In Colors, extra gloss is added to the illustrations, which really "pop," whether they are of rubber ducks and bananas (for "yellow") or of piglets and cupcakes with icing (for pink).” Infodad.com
With a bold call to action—"Go! Go! BoBo"—a busy toddler creates with abandon, clutching his paintbrush with dramatic fervor.
His soft shape has an uncanny resemblance to the Stay Puft Marshmallow Man, limbs morphing into blobs; the only constants are his single curl, prominently placed Band-Aid and tinyxeyes. Thematic unity is achieved through a repetitive format that proceeds hue by hue; vivid paint splatters against the plain background on the left-hand page, while a gray bouncing line chronicles his energetic journey on the facing page. He creates detailed images with a glossy sheen, from red fire trucks and roses to a golden bunch of bananas, ripe for the picking. BoBo seamlessly shifts positions through the color scheme; facial expressions correlate with each shade. (BoBo lands feet first in the blue paint can, and a barely noticeable "oh" formed on his lips seals the deal.) The text consists of nothing but color labels until BoBo returns to his room, a rainbow above his bed, and concludes, "Go! Go! Colors!" The companionShapessucceeds with similar stocky flair.
