Remember playing ‘I Spy’ with your kids in the car? That was fun! (Way more fun than picking up a cell phone and scaring the rest of the drivers to death, by the way). Well this book, a small board book that offers young children a way to look at the vibrant colors of this world, brings back the fun of teaching and reading with your little ones!
As Chester Raccoon walks through his forest world, he starts spotting those beautiful colors of our rainbow that, without them, would just leave us with a black-and-white boring world. From yellow balloons floating through the air to the most beautiful cornflower blue petals in the woods, every color is accounted for. Kids will have a ball picking out the colors they love the most!
The illustrator has done a beautiful job offering pictures of Chester and his friends that will make your kids laugh out loud. And the author has gone back to the A, B, C’s of learning so that your young ones can really soak up and enjoy the rainbow that will forever follow them through their magnificent futures.
Quill says: A small book with a whole lot of beauty!
