If you love Oz, you'll love this book. It's fun to see how the authors can go color by color and also stick to the general story. However, the structure of the book--one color per page, lots of items and labels for each color--makes it a little bit difficult to read aloud straight through. Instead, I look through it with my toddler and ask her questions or play games we've invented--What color is this? What do you see on this page? Can you find anything blue in our house? I love that we can adapt the book to my child's developmental stage, but it's also a little hard to read with more than one child at a time.
