Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Basher brings his distinctive line of informational books to an even younger audience with the introduction of BoBo, a marshmallow-headed little guy with an urge to bounce (a bandage on his forehead suggests a propensity for accidents). In this outing, glossy shapes appear at left, while BoBo bounces past them and into scenes in which they are featured (he splashes out of a pool of water containing boats with triangular sails, careens between rectangular flat-screen TVs, and launches himself into a clump of heart-shaped balloons). It's a vibrant and playful primer on the topic. Available simultaneously: Colors. Up to age 4. (Apr.)
From the Publisher

“Both simple and charming, the high-contrast, boldly colored graphics make for delicious morsels of toddler eye candy.” —Booklist

“These sturdy board books with rounded corners are solid choices.” —School Library Journal

“The glossy, dramatic artwork and the sturdy pages are a perfect combination for introducing BoBo and shapes to pre-school children.” —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 Shapes, for example, he shows a basic square and then has Bobo bounce through wrapped square packages in front of which square dice are visible. A circle leads to a bounce through buttons and oranges; a heart, to heart-shaped balloons and strawberries; and so on.” —Transcentury.blogspot.com

School Library Journal
PreS—BoBo is a small, cartoonlike character with a big, round head and no feet or hands; his chalk-white body is outlined in black. Band-Aid on forehead, energetic BoBo bounces on the bed at the beginning and end of both books. Each title identifies six concepts with one word in the upper-left-hand corner of the verso and an illustration under it. Lines conveying action trail BoBo plunging into a cluster of objects on the recto. For example, in Colors, the word "Pink" is printed over a large pink splatter opposite pink piglets and cupcakes with pink icing. In Shapes, a large heart is teamed with a group of colorful heart-shaped balloons and strawberries. These sturdy board books with rounded corners are solid choices.—Laura Butler, Mount Laurel Library, NJ
