2009 Award
( by Simms Taback, Blue Apple/Chronicle $6.99 Score: )

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.
