Enter the world of Robert Crowther and brace yourself for a mega-blast of color. This bold and beautiful book, with its abundance of tabs and flaps, offers young readers hidden surprises on every page and a revealing look at color in our world.
Each two-page spread focuses on a single color. For example, one spread appears initially as a simple wash of red. But pull the tabs to see the word "red" in bold black letters, plus a variety of objects in that hue, including watermelons, ladybugs, and lobsters. Each item is paired with its name, giving kids a leg up on word recognition.
Crowther also varies the items from everyday objects, such as blue jeans and toothpaste, to the more exotic, like tigers and emeralds. The illustrations are sweet and simple -- the perfect balance for young learners. With a flair for paper artistry and a keen perception of color, Robert Crowther makes Colors a delightful stepping-stone for preschoolers. (Amy Barkat)
