Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Suzie Davis
Parents and educators that want to encourage young children to explore colors for the first time will delight in this book by Tad Hills. His quaint and loveable characters, Duck and Goose, and their friends Bluebird and Thistle, demonstrate different colors by using comparisons with familiar objects to help relate common colors to each other. The sturdy board book design will make it easier for toddlers’ and preschoolers’ young hands to turn the pages for themselves and will ensure its longevity for many years of enjoyment. Emerging readers will take pleasure in reading this book as well with its simple words, familiar objects, repetitive concept, colorful pages and lovable characters. Duck and Goose Colors! is one of several books by Hills with these adorable characters. Young readers can enjoy Duck, Goose, and their friends in other equally charming, entertaining, and educational stories. Reviewer: Suzie Davis; Ages 2 to 5.

Baby/Toddler—A string of similes offers an introduction to the colors as seen by Hills's endearing birds on a wonder-filled trip outdoors. Yellow equals buttercups, and green, an inchworm and leaves, while the end of Goose's beak is black, "like ants," and Goose's feathers are white, "like the clouds."

Duck and Goose are back with another board book to help very young children learn their colors. While the story is slight—as in nonexistent—these two cleanly drawn friends are the perfect teachers to introduce colors. Duck and Goose look just as wide-eyed and incredulous as in the original picture books—as if they are just amazed at their newfound knowledge. Each double-page spread is a simple statement of fact, with a simile that references items that young children will recognize and that are easily found on the page. "The inchworm is GREEN, like leaves." While young children may not recognize an inchworm, they will recognize leaves and be able to identify the other green object—the inchworm. Hills includes seven of the eight colors from the kindergarten crayon box: yellow, blue, green, orange, purple, and black, plus white. He substitutes gray for brown, perhaps as a way to include Duck's friend Thistle, who is gray. Indeed, the book serves as an introduction to the whole world of Duck & Goose, guaranteeing that young children will be eager to graduate to Hill's relatively more complex picture books when they outgrow board books. Duck and Goose have taken their places alongside Frog and Toad and George and Martha as fine examples of friendship, curiosity, and problem-solving, and this offering is a good way to introduce babies to the pair.
