Product description

Review

A board book that does exactly what it says on the tin. Except there’s a lot more to it than that... ― Families South East London

An early learning journey through a world of more than 130 colours, this book includes a colour wheel to turn and see-through acetate pages to discover what happens when you mix colours together. ― Baby London

This book examines colours not only from the artist’s perspective but also covers quirky information and metaphorical usage. The moveable colour wheel explains colour matching, then each double-page spread looks at how colour is mixed, examples of objects of that colour, various shades and common expressions. The author lists colours associated with different moods too. The illustrations are appealing and witty from the contents page in the form of an artist’s palette to a flappable acetate page to show changing colours. This book will be the start of many conversations with young children. ― School Library Association Information Book Award judges 2016

Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 28 March 2021
The illustrations in this book are really cute although I seem to like it more than my 11 month old babies. It does have a colour wheel in it which got ripped in like 30 seconds. I love it and would recommend it for maybe slightly older babies, I think it would be cool for getting them to find the pictures. It also has different shades of colours in it which I thought was good for teaching them different words.
