School Library JournalThese sturdy board books with rounded corners are solid choices. Kirkus Reviews(starred review) vivid [and] energetic . . . This near-wordless romp encourages tots to pick up some paints of their own. BooklistA great title to encourage toddlers interactive play, this board book introduces six basic colors, one on each double-page spread. . . . A riot. . . . Kids will want to move from the book to the real world and name the colors all around them. Tucsoncitizen.comThe thick pages and clever artwork are a user-friendly way to educate pre-school children about basic colors. Infodad.comThe Go! Go! Bobo board books are bright delights, filled with pictures of a bouncy baby zipping through the air amid a whole series of shapes or colors. Basher manages to make the simple books extra-attractive in several ways. . . . In Colors, extra gloss is added to the illustrations, which really “pop,” whether they are of rubber ducks and bananas (for “yellow”) or of piglets and cupcakes with icing (for “pink”).
