Review - Colors By Thierry Laval

Chronicle Books, board book,
10p, ages Infant-3,
Isbn-9780811879521
Children can't get enough of color, but making them learn the names of these beloved colors is another task. Which is why I'm always happy to introduce my kid to the world of colors with simple, yet fun and informative books like this one.

This clever board book has pages of different colors. Each glossy colored page has a flap with a die-cut shape, lifting which reveals a brightly colored image of familiar things. For example, on a page covered with green lily pads, there's a lily pad shaped die-cut. Lifting that up reveals a green grinning frog underneath. Purple flowers are scattered across another page only to reveal purple butterflies underneath, while flying black bats populate another and lift up to reveal a witch flying on a broom.

The charming die cuts along with the surprise that awaits beneath each, were the inspiration for many delighted squeals of surprise and laughter among my kids. My older kid had a blast trying to teach the younger one the different colors with this book and ultimately they both liked it so much, they ended up in a tug of war over it.

Books like these which combine fun with learning, are the best kind there are!
