Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews
Though bright and bold, this exploration of color demonstrates a dreary understanding of tots' abilities. Clearly recognizable photographs, several to a spread, present both objects regularly associated with specific colors (yellow school bus, red ladybug) and those that occur in many hues (crayon, flower). Each color is introduced in a clear spread that features several labeled objects, while the following spread asks the audience to find items of that color in a crowded scene full of like choices. "This is candy for a special after-dinner treat. Can you find everything orange?" The scattering of orange-peel candies and an array of gumdrops and jelly beans in eye-poppingly bright shades makes it difficult to distinguish among the treats. Each of these spreads also presents a factoid in an inset circle that lacks any context for the toddling set. "GUESS WHAT? / It takes 7 to 21 days to make a jellybean." Companion title Same and Different requires a similarly advanced skill set, asking listeners to "spot the difference." These busy arrangements require an older audience and a different format. (Board book. 2-3)
