As you can probably tell by now, we really love books in this house! Jacob is already familiar with his colours, whereas Noah is still learning about colours and objects so a book we were recently sent to review – Colours Colours Everywhere – fits the bill for both of these.
The Colours Colours Everywhere book itself is hardback, which I do prefer for my children as Noah especially, is a bit of a book ninja (I may have mentioned that before?). The book contains all of the primary colours and those in between, including black & white. Some of the pictures on the pages are also 3D and can be seen through almost every page of the book, making it good for sensory learning too as the child can feel the pictures as well as looking and learning.
There is a good mix of pictures in the book, from animals, to clothing, to vehicles, to food. All of the pictures have the object name written against them so for a reading age child they can identify it by that too. On every other page there is also a rhyme to describe the colour it is showing; the colour of the pictures do relate to how they would probably be in real life too so it isn’t confusing for the child.
Jacob, being 4 years old already can name all of the colours and pretty much all of the pictures, thought Noah is still learning them, but the book is recommended for 3 years old plus so he is doing quite well with it; meaning that it can be suitable for those under that age too. J does also help N with naming the pictures, which is cute! Sometimes N just likes to sit and look at the pictures, and touch the 3D ones.
This is one of those books that is ideal for a child who already knows simple objects and you are looking to go up a level with their learning. Being bright colours too, it tends to keep their attention for longer! The boys keep going back to it so it grabs their attention too.
