This lovely book helps youngsters identify colors through vivid illustrations that capture their imagination. Early readers can also recognize the written names of the colors, as each one is spelled out in its corresponding color.
My review: I love this book!
I should probably say why, here are 14 reasons…
- It’s simplicity
- The bold coloured backgrounds
- The character designs
- The boy’s Breton jumper
- Sophy’s signature
- The mat finish
- The quality of the paper
- The typography on the front cover
- The bear’s pot belly
- The rhythm of the words
- The old school red telephone
- Sophy’s little puffin illustrations on the spine & title page
- The end pages
- The exquisite illustrations
The story is of a bear, who lives with a boy in a house. The bear outgrows the house. The boy tries to find his friend a more suitable home.
This is Sophy Henn’s debut picture book. I for one can’t wait for the next.
Watch this space, a Q&A with Sophy is coming soon.
