Board book: Duck & Goose Colors
First sentence: Duck is yellow, like a field of buttercups. Bluebird is blue, like the sky and the sea. The inchworm is green, like leaves. Duck's feet are orange, like a pumpkin, a carrot, and Goose's hat.
Premise/plot: What you should know about this book: a) it's a board book; b) it's a concept book--teaching colors; c) it stars Tad Hills' Duck & Goose.
My thoughts: I do like Duck and Goose. My favorite book starring Duck and Goose is DUCK & GOOSE FIND A PUMPKIN. If your little one loves these characters, this one is worth reading. It is simple. One sentence per spread, and each sentence is focused on introducing one color. There isn't any story to this one. But not every color concept book can be Mouse Paint. I do like the rhythm of the prose.
