Our Favorite Color Books

We have done a lot of reading over the last month about the different colors.  Here are some of the books that we have enjoyed!  These are the books that Little Guy pulled out over and over to read again and again and again.

The series of pop-up books by David. A. Carter was by far Little Guy's favorite books.  We spent hours reading and re-reading the books, taking time to look for the different things hidden on each page.  If you haven't seen the books before, you have to check them out!  The books include:
  • One Red Dot
  • Blue 2
  • 600 Black Spots
  • Yellow Square
  • White Noise

We also really enjoyed two books by Eric Carle: Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See and 10 Little Rubber Ducks.  The version of Brown Bear that we have is a slide and find, where there is a little tab that you slide to see that the animal sees.  It is fun, and makes the book more interactive. At the end of 10 Little Rubber Ducks, there is a button to push to make the rubber duck squeak.  Little Guy loved that button!

Little Guy really enjoyed Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss.  I think he  really liked saying "Sam I am!"  An additional bonus is hearing all the rhyming words, which is a very important early literacy skill.

Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes was another big hit.  It was especially fun to watch this YouTube video and sing along.

This list wouldn't be complete without Blue Hat, Green Hat by Sandra Boynton.  Little Guy especially loved reading the "oops" pages.

A great find from the library was Colors by Heidi Goennel.  There are wonderful descriptions of the different colors in this book.

What are your favorite books about colors?
