Wonderful cut outs and strangely coloured objects that magically correct themselves on turning the page. Great fun. (www.bettybookmark.co.uk)
Laura Vaccaro Seeger's playful approach in Lemons are not Red uses die-cut pages to reveal the coloure objects, inviting adult and child to play a guessing game before turning the pages to confirm their predications. (The Ultimate First Book Guide)
Most early years books on colour are incredibly uninspiring..Thank goodness then for Lemons Are Not Red. Through the clever use of cut-outs and by simply turning the page, children can discover that a lemon isn't deep red, but bright yellow; a carrot isn't purple, but orange; a flamingo isn't grey but pink...A classic! (Nursery World)
The simple ideas are brought brightly to life with rich, attractive pictures inviting the reader to join in with the repetitive text (Carousel)
