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 childandrsquo;s sense of visual discrimination.

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).
