Review by School Library Journal Reviews

Baby-Toddler—What can you find when you explore colors? That is the question examined in this board book, which can be used to teach color but also by budding gardening enthusiasts. The vibrant photographs take center stage on very page, expanding to reveal strikingly beautiful flowers and plant life. The text, however, is not aimed at children, but in a small size, intended for adults reading along. Despite the small-scale font, babies and children will love turning the pages of this book and learning how colors exist on a spectrum, blending into one another. VERDICT A solid board book offering on colors—Kelly Finan Richards Copyright 2022 School Library Journal.
