Let’s Go to Color Camp!: Beginning Baby

Chronicle. Jun. 2023. 18p. Board $12.99. ISBN 9781797218724.
Toddler-PreS–With splashed dots of colors on tabs that run across the top of the book and then down the right side of it, and featuring inviting hosts such as a pink octopus, blue narwhal, orange-ish giraffe, teal (and bespectacled) elephant, red panda, yellow llama, and purple monkey, this vibrant board book will find its way into the hands of babies, toddlers, and preschoolers curious about the concept of camp. Slater takes on all topics with confidence, with colorful items to point out that match the coded dots on the tabs, scenes of cooperation and friendship, names of animals (no one’s quibbling about scale here, or geographic contradictions), and an inclusive narrative voice that keeps the pages turning. Who wouldn’t want to just start the book over?
VERDICT A great use of the format, concept, and matching skills to busy hands and curious minds. Perfection.
