Color Bears

by Judy Palaferro

Board Book



Whimsical designs, adorable bears in candy-colored hues, and visually stimulating black-and-white pages highlight the simple text of Color Bears to bring delight to toddlers and infants. Created with advice from early education experts, this wonderful gift book introduces perception concepts and language with high-concept art in a style well suited to fashion-forward boutiques and buyers.

This fun-loving cardboard book bursting with bears will engage any toddler at first glance. The vibrant art serves as a graphic way to explore color and shape while the high-contrast illustrations are perfect for newborns trying to focus their small eyes. Color Bears also introduces animals to young readers in a variety of captivating landscapes.

Each page intersperses an enchanting bear character with patterned black-and-white illustrations, including a red building bear, a pink cupcake bear, and more! Simple, rhythmic text nourishes beginning readers with descriptive words for color, texture, and shape.

The stylized illustrations of Judy Palaferro have their roots in her teenage admiration for rock and roll album covers and the 1980s New York art scene. Palaferro has worked as a print and web designer and as a book buyer for a children’s toy store. Palaferro has worked for eighteen years in New York City as a children’s graphic artist and textile designer in the fashion industry. Color Bears displays her beautiful sense of bright and pleasing aesthetics and her love for animals, imagination, and children’s art.

This will be one of those books that kids request again and again. I doubt you will mind, as this is a truly gorgeous book. On each page you will be delighted with detail. You'll find clever, eye catching black and white patterns in forms to spark a child's interest. The vibrant colors and short catchy words will be quickly memorized. From yellow bear sunglasses, flower bears and a bear snowman, the beautiful color images have hidden delights throughout. A child will grasp more and more with each read and the thick cardboard pages should withstand the handling of small, eager hands. It is on the top of my list for my next baby gift.
