Outline ReviewRobert Crowther, acknowledged master of paper engineering, takes on a new challenge--and passes with flying colors. In this clever book, very young readers are invited to contemplate color. Each two-page spread is a solid expanse of red, yellow, pink, etc. But look closely, and discover tabs and flaps that, when opened, reveal an array of similarly colored critters and objects. Pull one yellow tab and a big bold sign appears, announcing "yellow." Pull another tab, and six windows are suddenly filled with the sun, a lemon, a sandcastle, an egg yolk, a daffodil, a banana--there's even a canary perched on the tab. But wait, there's more! Two additional flaps can be lifted to uncover chicks and a stick of butter. Red, green, pink, blue, orange, white, and black are similarly explored, with little windows that can also help young readers learn about shapes. Find 80 hidden pictures with 30 flaps and tabs in this interactive celebration of color.

GOOD BOOK (but has room for improvement) Jun 18, 2002
This book is for ages 4-8. But do parents really want to wait until a child is 4 to begin teaching colors? I know I don't. Knowing that, my daughter is almost 4 and has had this book over a year. She doesn't intentionally destroy things yet somehow she has torn out one of the tabs completely and some of the flaps. Don't get me wrong. COLORS is a good, fun, educational book my child LOVES! It just isn't very durable for the NEEDED age group, in my opinion, that it SHOULD HAVE BEEN MARKETED FOR. (Colors can be taught before a child begins to speak, just hand them an object and state its color.) COLORS needs TRUE primary and secondary colors! It has primary red (great), primary yellow (terrific), a lime green (huh?), soft pink (why?), light blue (needs to be primary blue), a true secondary orange (good!), and then white and black. All I'm saying is the colors should have been taken from the color wheel and sequenced so--Red, purple, Blue, green, Yellow and orange. White and black are good to have in there, I agree.
I give it 4 stars because of the following SUPERB features:
1 Even though one of the tabs and page got ripped the book is VERY STURDY and WELL MADE. Accidents happen, she just got frustrated and couldn't pull the tab down so she ripped it down. 2 EACH COLOR IS SPELT OUT when my daughter pulls the tab on the left side of the full page spread of each color (bravo-helps me teach spelling/sounding out the word.) 3 The pull out tab pictures and lift flaps on the right are FAMILIAR and POPULAR OBJECTS to my daughter and are a GREAT REINFORCEMENT of the color she is viewing. 4 SHE LOVES IT! And that is what matters the most.
BOTTOM LINE: If the tabs were stronger and the colors truer (all primary and secondary,) then this would have been a 5 star book.
Great Fun with Colors Jun 26, 2001

Made with heavy, durable stock, each two page spread introduces and concentrates on one bold, vibrant color (red, yellow, green, pink, blue, orange, black and white), by first introducing the color name and then using creative pictures to teach, and little hands will lift flaps and pull tabs to see and learn more.
