Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Publishers Weekly

Sweet-natured humor infuses the clear, precise artwork, and Baker's talented bunnies are as winsome as can be.

Children's Literature

Cuddly rabbits help youngsters learn about the world in a Kingfisher-published series by Alan Baker. White Rabbit's Color Book is especially enjoyable for its gentle humor and the surprises awaiting a curious bunny exploring tubs of yellow, red, and blue paint.

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Each of these innovative concept books adds an extra dimension to the usual lessons about letters, colors, shapes and numbers. ABC , like so many other alphabet books, starts out with an apple, but then departs from the expected: the familiar fruit becomes the subject of Black and White Rabbit's painting in a wry and often very messy journey from A to Z. 1,2,3 combines a counting lesson with animal identification (and more art) as Gray Rabbit molds piles of colored clay into a variety of figures. In Shape , Brown Rabbit investigates the contents of a brightly wrapped package. White Rabbit, in Color , shows off the mixable properties of the primary colors when she immerses herself in three big tubs of paint. Sweet-natured humor infuses the clear, precise artwork, and Baker's talented bunnies are as winsome as can be. Ages 6 mos.-3 yrs. (Mar.)

    disappointed

    I was excited to bring this book to story time,but when I opened it and read it I found it to be boring..I read it to the kids and they weren't really into it... the process that rabbit went through to explore the different colors I found to be confusing,I'd pass on this one not effective for learning about colors.

    Good book to read to little ones

    This is a wonderful book to read to your children. The story is very simple so that toddlers can follow and has basic colors which the story has you mixing to make other colors. The pictures are big and memorable for little ones. It was a favorite for both my daughter and son, and I purchased it for my niece who just had her first baby.

    My Daughter's Favorite Book

    My 3 year old daughter and I love White Rabbit's Color Book. She loves to see rabbit jump into the different pots of color, only to rinse herself off to try other colors. This book also introduces toddlers to the concept colors that are created when primary colors are mixed together. My daughter is biracial, and when white rabbit ends up as a happy brown rabbit at the end of the story, she laughs and says that rabbit is brown just like her.

    This is a wonderful book that teaches about colors in a very fun way. We received this book as a gift and now plan to purchase more to give as gifts. We also like Little Rabbit's Shape book and Number book.

    A wonderful way to explore the world of colors!

    This book is one of my child's favorites. Rabbit explores the world of primary colors by jumping into different tubs of paint, washes off and then trys another color. Eventually Rabbit mixes colors making green, orange and purple. The vivid colors, and curious way of Rabbit makes this book a family treasure. We absolutely love it. I even gave it as Easter gifts to several children. I highly recommend it.

    Brainwashing little kids for fun!!!

    My daughter brought this book home for her first grade reading assignment. The story goes like this: a white rabbit jumps from color pot to color pot and changes colors, in the end choosing to use ALL the colors and remain the BEST color there is, which is brown. Two problems: one, all the primary colors do not add up to brown...try it yourself by mixing food coloring. It's a muddy grey. Two, the message here is, 'Rabbit's original color wasn't good enough!' Aren't we trying to get away from this kind of thinking?
