Bear Sees Colors

PreS—This wonderful, rhyming book for babies, toddlers, and preschoolers is awash in color: "Blue flowers by the trail. Blue berries. Blue Pail. Blue, blue EVERYWHERE!" The audiobook, as a stand-alone offering, cannot possibly convey the essence of the book (S. & S., 2014), which delivers brilliant color along with a sense of exploration, discovery, and exuberance. Babies, toddlers, and preschoolers who are learning colors will need to actually see the colors so beautifully rendered on the printed pages, as they learn to identify them and recognize other similarly colored objects. John McDonough's grandfatherly voice, measured and expressive, hangs on a suspenseful note just before each page is turned. Use the audio and printed version of this book simultaneously to fully engage young readers/listeners by providing a wonderful visual and listening experience.—Mary Oluonye, Shaker Heights Public Library, OH
