Nice but nothing new
on 1 May 2012
AS it is for very young children, this book is necessarily short on text and is only a few pages long. However, I was surprised as just HOW short it is. It only covers the colours red, orange, yellow, green and blue - I would have expected purple, black and white to make an appearance! The real disappointment was the texture elements, which are very lackluster. The "silky" green isn't especially silky, the fluffy yellow isn't particularly fluffy, etc. For such a simple book it feels like a greater effort could have been invested in making it engaging. That said, it is very chunky and durable, and should stand up to a fair amount of abuse from little hands. Overall, it is fine for what it is, but there are much better examples of this very standard formula out there.
