Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Sharon Salluzzo
Three of Lionni's picture books, Colors, Numbers, and Letters have been combined into one board book. His signature mice romp across the pages and invite the reader to join the fun. No delineations are made between the sections. One flows into the next. In the first section, toddlers and preschoolers are introduced to the five colors of blue, yellow, red, green, and black. All five are brought together in a final "dance" scene. There is a little storyline with the numbers. A lonely mouse finds another mouse and soon they have little mice, all the way up to 10. The numeral is printed in a color that stands out against the gray and brown mice. Little collage mice climb on, peek through, carry, and play with colorful letters of the alphabet which are in contrast to the gray mice. The sturdy board book format with Lionni's clean layout and active little mice makes this multiple concept book an accessible and good choice for toddlers and young preschoolers.

Meet the Author

Leo Lionni, an internationally known designer, illustrator, and graphic artist, was born in Holland and studied in Italy until he came to the United States in 1939. He was the recipient of the 1984 American Institute of Graphic Arts Gold Medal and was honored posthumously in 2007 with the Society of Illustrators Lifetime Achievement Award. His picture books are distinguished by their enduring moral themes, graphic simplicity, and brilliant use of collage, and include four Caldecott Honor Books: Inch by Inch, Frederick, Swimmy, and Alexander and the Wind-Up Mouse. Hailed as "a master of the simple fable" by the Chicago Tribune, he died in 1999 at the age of 89.
