My First Jumbo Book of Colors
ISBN 0439324467 - If ever a book's cover was an accurate preview of what you'll find inside, this is the book. It's not just bright and colorful, it's got a rubbery raincoat and a sparkling sun to add a very unique touch.
Amazing, what can be fit into a mere ten pages! Starting with basic colors (red, yellow, blue), progressing to mixed colors (orange, purple, green) and ending with two pages of various colors, this book is filled with fun things to do - all aimed at teaching your child colors. There are flaps to lift, tabs to pull and some surprising textured items to feel. A touch and feel fence? How unexpected!
The illustrations, by James Diaz and Melanie Gerth, are 99 percent of the book and they are superb. The drawings are basic, perfect since too much detail would distract from the purpose. Learning is good, fun learning is fantastic!
