Editorial Reviews

Criticas
PreS-Using the familiar song, Wolff has created a bright, child-friendly board book that celebrates nature. Whether the protagonist is running through fields, braid flying, as the rain comes down, observing the birds on her patio, or watching the chickens as they eat, the simple joy of the many colors of the natural world surround and enthrall her. The watercolor illustrations are predictably colorful and, though not distinguished, certainly well rendered. The details will keep listeners interested, and the inclusion of the music is a plus. The English translation is accurate, though without the music of the Spanish original. While not of the caliber of Alma Flor Ada's wonderful Pio, Peep! (Criticas, May/Jun. 2003), which includes many Latin American nursery rhymes, De colores still has a place in collections for the very youngest. Recommended for bookstores and libraries that serve preschoolers. Ann Welton, Grant Center for the Expressive Arts, Tacoma, WA Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
