Charley Harper Colors by Charley Harper

Charley Harper's birds take centre stage in this colour-based concept book for young kids. The intricate designs show off the colourful creatures. All the favourites are here: red, green, blue, pink, and more. While young babies and toddlers might have a more difficult time seeing the little details, preschoolers might appreciate the whimsy of pictures like a fire hydrant covered in birds. I can see this being a hit with hip parents who love different art styles and want to introduce their children to books beyond the ordinary.

(My personal favourite page is the one of a duck swimming in a lake surrounded by orange, yellow, and red leaved-trees. It's a lovely fall image.)

I received an advance review copy at NetGalley courtesy of Ammo Books.
