Little Kid Reaction

My kids loved the bright colors and playfulness in this book! The cute story and fun illustrations made it a must-re-read for my boys.

Parent Reaction

I loved the sweet duck in the story! He is very cute and adorably illustrated! The words were few, but that is a good thing for a 2-year-old. The color learning is just right for this age -- and younger! The illustrations are wonderful enough I'd recommend this as a "first book" to even babies who are not developmentally able to identify colors. My favorite part of the book is at the end when duck comes in from the rain and momma duck wraps him up in a warm purple towel -- so sweet!

Type of Book:
This is a fun exploration into the world of identifying colors for toddlers. Preschoolers can use it as an easy reader.
Educational Themes:

In addition to learning colors, you can explore the world when it rains and is wet (mud, puddles, rainbows).

Recommended Age To Read Together:

Age of child:

Purchase Recommendation:
Buy. This is a sweet book you'll read over and over. It would make a WONDERFUL gift for a first birthday, holiday, or just because! Pair it with a towel and it will be truly loved.
