Review - Colors By Thierry Laval

Chronicle Books, board book,
10p, ages Infant-3,
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!

Too much time has elapsed since Serena broke her engagement to her childhood companion, Rotherham, (and that too after the invitations had been sent - such a scandal!) for them to feel anything but discomfort at this bit of posthumous matchmaking on the part of the Earl. Or so they both declare.

Used to commanding a large household and having acted as her father's hostess from a young age, energetic and politically-savvy Serena soon finds herself in doldrums when her life is suddenly reduced to a small Dower house with none but her father's young widow, Fanny, for company and a social sphere consisting of occasional visits from neighbors who'd been just casual acquain…
