Overview

  In this fourth PANTONE offering for the preschool set, children learn to match shades of each of the six basic colors in a self-correcting format. Each spread focuses on variations of a single color category (such as purple), featuring a full-bleed tonal illustration on the left side of the spread and a grid of shades on the right. The illustration has four removable puzzle pieces that fit into the four associated quadrants, arranged by shade. This puzzle book enables young children to further their color familiarity in a uniquely engaging way, strengthening both their visual acuity and their spatial and fine motor skills. An appropriately challenging and satisfying matching book for toddlers, preschoolers, and color-conscious adults!

Color matching takes on new meaning in this puzzle game that joins a series of board books using the Pantone Matching System. Tucked inside six scenes illustrated by Carpenter are four removable cardboard pieces that fit into die-cut spots on the facing pages. A pointy spire in a blue cityscape has its home inside the “nighttime blue” quadrant of one spread, while two oval leaves in “grasshopper” and “dollar bill” green pop out of a jungle scene that highlights a frog, snake, and toucan. Lively interactive fun. Ages 3–5. (Oct.)

Another overdesigned board book, with puzzle pieces this time, from PANTONE, the company that creates the widely used color matching system. Each double-page spread focuses on one color of the rainbow. The left-hand side is a full-page, graphically minded scene using a variety of hues of the color in question. On the facing pages, the PANTONE chips make their appearance, four shades occupying the four quadrants of the page separated by a bold white line in typical PANTONE fashion. Both sides of each page spread carry four shaped indentations to hold abstract puzzle shapes made of paperboard. Featuring machines that go on the left, the red spread has pieces that become the door and siren on a fire truck. These same pieces fit into slots labeled "Stop Sign Red / PANTONE 485" and "Brick Red / PANTONE 7627" on the right. While the cartoon tableaux are droll, the use of PANTONE numbers will make little sense to youngsters. The puzzle pieces themselves are relatively easy to get in and out once loosened, but, after a few readings, they will likely flake at the edges if they are not lost altogether. The small pieces force this message on the back cover: "WARNING: CHOKING HAZARD—Small parts. Not for children under 3 yrs." While the puzzle gimmick may hold youngsters' interest for a few readings, it is unlikely to have a long shelf life. (Board book. 3-4)
