I love this book about colors! It’s so sweet, and I love that there’s a storyline, following baby bear throughout his day to see what colors he finds all around him. So sweet, and the illustrations are just as beautiful!

6.0 / 7.0

This is one of my very favorite “color” books—it’s calming, highly re-readable, unique and has amazingly illustrations! Plus, the repetition of the structure is great for little “readers”.

This is a sweet book about a mother bear and her baby. The detailed linocut illustrations tinted with watercolors are beautiful and fun full-page spreads. The story is by turns dramatic and intimate as the mother and baby bear experience their world together, encouraging readers and youngsters to explore their own colorful worlds togetherl.
