Review by School Library Journal Review

Toddler-PreS--This love-inspired primer introduces colors to youngsters with mixed results. It begins, "Love is full colors," and then describes a characteristic related to the featured color and an expression of love, often connecting to the creators' Latinx heritage. However, some comparisons are more child-friendly than others. "Red like pan dulce" evokes an appropriate sweetness that kids will understand. However, orange like orange the fruit--"sweet, but a little sour at times"--is a metaphor that will fly over kids' heads. Green is a thorny heart; black are the dots on a grandfather's dominoes, but no explanation is given as to why. Reyes's art is as cheery as ever, with bright colors and a diverse cast. But, the concluding spread asks readers to choose what color is their love today, which might be confusing to some, especially in light of the several missteps in the previous pages. VERDICT A bilingual primer with an amiable sentiment that misses the mark.--Shelley M. Diaz
