KIRKUS REVIEW

Concentric die-cuts give this color book a tactile element. Undistinguished rhyming text (“it’s time to have some rainbow fun! / let’s meet the colors, one by one…”) arranged around a rainbow-banded circular hole takes readers color by color with each page turn. Red flowers on a red background, green fish, purple butterflies all disport at the appropriate point, varying only in hue and saturation for contrast. One significant misstep is the “yellow sun”—against a sharply yellow background slightly less saturated rays surround the left-hand die-cut circle; the lack of contrast will likely leave readers puzzling, “What sun?” A companion volume, Five Little Ducks! (ISBN: 978-1-59223-904-7), presents the familiar song with die-cuts concealing each progressive duckling and fuzz on the mother on the last page. Fingers and voice work as well or better, for free. (6-18 mos.)
