Chances are your older toddler/preschooler will know what the answer is to each question posed on the fist frame of a giant fold out. The feet, stripes, mouth and other signal clue is clear when the text asks, “Who as I?” But that does not take away any of the excitement of unfolding the giant pages of bright colored animals. Another small factoid is added to the mix, but it is the art that is a wow! 2-5.

Adorable babies born all over the world introduce the world of multiculturalism to the youngest lapsitter. A repetitive refrain links them together with their commonality…“as everyone knows had ten little fingers and ten little toes.” Oxenbury’s illustrations are delicious and will be fun to explore and talk about with your own little one. They say 3-5, we’d suggest this will be enjoyed by toddlers who love seeing babies like themselves in books. 18 months and up.

Color books are not always clear and even mix two colors to a page. This one is well designed with one color to a page and sometimes even two pages for one color. The pages are printed on sturdy cardboard stock so they can take the kind of tough handling of little hands. This can be used for knowing and naming objects as well as colors. This goes a step beyond the usual primary colors and includes some of the less familiar hues such as lavender, crimson, aqua, and tan. We might have left some of those out, but that said, this is a nice little book for talking about colors. Also see, Animals ($4.99) Again, the animals chosen go beyond familiar animals and stretch the usual boundries of knowing and naming books for young children. It starts with a generic "bird" in flight and moves on to a page dedicated to a penguin, a flamingo and a parrot among others such as aquatic creatures such as an octopus, crab, turtle and frog. The illustration are all attractive, it is just a strange combination of critters for such young "readers" to recognize or name.
