Pantone: Colorsby Pantone
Synopses & Reviews
This artful first colors book introduces children to 9 basic colors and 20 shades of each. Readers will immerse themselves in the concept that one color name actually refers to a variety of dark, light, and in-between tones. Young children will begin by simply naming the colors of the monochromatic images and will soon grow to select their favorite and least-favorite shades. Pantone: Colors is a visually pleasing way to expand the colors conversation and develop a child’s sense of visual discrimination.
Praise for Pantone: Colors
"It’s an evocative exploration of the nuances of color, in a polished, eye-catching package."
"Your kiddos will be tickled pink by Pantone’s extraordinary primer with nine basic colors in twenty glorious shades each. It’s almost too hard to choose one favorite from the rainbow."
"Beautifully designed from cover to cover."
"This smart and playful board book uses the Pantone Matching System to explore variations in familiar colors. On the right, a familiar object (a yellow lion, a pink piggy bank) rendered in Dardik's friendly, chunky style represents each color, while a chart on the left displays 20 different shades of said color in square panels that correspond to official Pantone colors. Shades of red (embodied by a red wagon) include Ladybug Red (Pantone 200) and Chili Pepper Red (Pantone 7427), while blues range from Teapot Blue (Pantone 284) to Police Officer Blue (Pantone 2727). It's an evocative exploration of the nuances of color, in a polished, eye-catching package. Up to age 5. Illustrator's agent: Lilla Rogers Studio. (Mar.)" Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC.
