Nothing particularly wrong with it except the pictures are pretty uninspiring. My children have a quite lot of Arabic pictures books and this has got to be the worse. To teach vocabulary it is much better to get an illustrated bilingual dictionary or a big picture book, much more stimulating and any child can learn the colours (and a lot more) from that.
I have to say I have another 2 of this series and they are not as bad: the taste one has rhyming text (as opposed to simple word labels) and the opposites one has very cute images.

Format: Board book
I am writing this review after having already contacted the publisher, 'Milet' with the same comments in the hope that they take them onboard to improve future editions. This review refers to the 2011 first edition of English-Arabic My First Bilingual Book; Colours and I have also reviewed English-Arabic My First Bilingual Book; Numbers.

I was very excited when I saw that these books were due to be released and pre-ordered them. Living in the Middle East, both my toddler (just turned 3) daughter and I are learning Arabic. On the positive side I like the chunky board book format and the illustrations, I like that they include both the UK and American English words/spellings e.g. Tyre/tire (with the exception of 'sweater' which should also have 'jumper').

However, since they are bilingual books I assumed that as well as providing the English word and the word in the Arabic script that they would also provide the Arabic word written in English (so you are able to 'say' the word in Arabic) as most non-Arabic speaking people like myself will learn to speak first before being able to read the script. We have the 'Usborne 1000 words in Arabic' book which follows this format. The colours book is therefore a totally useless book for me as I have to already know the Arabic words to 'read' the book to my daughter.

This book is useful if you are Arabic speaking learning English or have one English speaking parent and one Arabic speaking parent. My books, however, have been donated to the Arabic playgroup we attend for 'story time', at least this way we get to learn the Arabic words we are unable to do with these books at home. We'll be sticking to our Usborne book for now.
