Bow-Wow's Colorful Life
Newgarden, Mark & Megan Montague Cash. 2009. Bow-Wow's Colorful Life. Houghton Mifflin Harcourt.
Learn your colors by reading Bow-Wow's Colorful Life. Bow-Wow stars in many board books. Many of these books are charming and delightful. Simple, yes. But satisfying none the less. They're very well suited for the youngest of readers. They're simple. They're fun. And they don't require much of an attention span. Bow-Wow's Colorful Life is a charming addition to the series. Take my word on it. It had me at hello. On the title page, we see Bow-Wow intently looking-and-sniffing at a foot. We then see Bow-Wow 'learning' his colors as he removes sock after sock after sock after sock. The ending is pure delight.
