Colours are endlessly fascinating to babies and toddlers as they gradually learn what each shade is called and discover which ones they like best. Here are all the main colours and the objects that are often associated with them, such as red tomatoes, strawberries, roses and poppies. The simple, lively text encourages reading skills and interactive questioning - what colour are your eyes, for example, and when do leaves turn brown? Developed with the advice of expert consultants, this first words and picture book will delight babies and young children, who will love looking at it, either with a grown-up or by themselves. Experts agree that preschool children respond more immediately to photographs than to illustrations. This padded boardbook is visually appealing, designed for preschoolers to enjoy and to learn from. It is full of fun images of youngsters just like them, together with cute animals, plants, food and other items in all the different shades - red, blue, yellow, green, orange, pink, brown, black and white. Devised with the help of educational experts, this book combines lively, simple text with bold, bright photographs to promote the development of literacy skills.
The images are carefully arranged into visual patterns, such as things that can be green, including apples, grapes, beans, leaves, a frog and a lizard. This encourages young readers to make connections, and to see how various things develop, work and link together.
