The author invites the reader to explore all the colors his dog can be ... and why Blue Dog is blue.
The story moves quickly, and Blue Dog is on every page. The "shifting" palette is a great way to introduce colors you won't find in other books for a younger target audience.
Our preschooler loves this book and will thumb throught it independently. S/He especially likes some of the food-colored names.
This is fun to read (and we've read it A LOT)! We especially like how it expands a child's color palette into new directions, using bold and subtle shades to introduce new hues.
Learn about the vast color palette ( and not just primary colors) with this picture book.
In addition to introducing wonderful colors, the book offers actual visuals for children to "think outside the book." You can play lots of "what if X were Y color? games.
