Cleo's Color Book

Summary:

Cleo the cat explores the colors in her world, both inside and out. She rends up in bed saying "good night" to the white moon.


Reader Enjoyment Factors:

Bright, fun colors and a sweet cat will delight young readers. The text is just the right length for a 2-year-old.

Content Awareness Factors:

For color learning, some colors are under-represented or not presented in their clear, pure form.


Little Kid Reaction

My 2-year-old son liked identifying everything on the page. He especially liked the scenes where Cleo was playing with the ball, eating ice cream, and taking a bath, probably because he can relate to them. we read this together, but sometimes he picked it up to read on his own.

Parent Reaction

I liked this book. It's very colorful and has a great color overview. I was a little disappointed by a couple colors represented; the object of that color was so small that it did not seem to have an obvious impact on color learning, or the color was not done well. Purpole was very dark and orange was very red.

Type of Book:
Learn your colors with Cleo the cat.
Educational Themes:

This is a book that is fun for color learning and object identification. It is a good way to connect kids to recognizing some of the things in their world, too.
