KIRKUS REVIEW

Stanley the hamster moves from simple picture books to the board-book set.

Babies and toddlers meet Stanley as he plays with his mouse pal, Little Woo, and explores a world filled with color. He drives an orange truck, floats in a pink hot air balloon, goes fishing in a blue motorboat, and more. Each turn of the page features a different color, advancing logically through the spectrum with the additions of pink and brown; the final double-page spread shows all of the colors in a playful scene. The crisp and clean illustrations with thick lines and bold colors will appeal to the board book’s target audience. Little readers will enjoy flipping through and identifying each color with Stanley’s smiling face accompanying them along the way. A similar title, Stanley’s Shapes, is concurrently published and features Stanley and his friends in a world of shapes. The books share the same color palette and simple, clean illustration style.

A clean-cut introduction to the colors of the rainbow. (Board book. 6 mos.-2)
