This series goes a bit beyond just naming things of a certain color, and we think home schoolers especially will enjoy it. We have sections on various shades of the color, something that is not usually addressed but can be confusing to small kids (how can the sky and my jeans be the same color?) Complimentary colors are mentioned - a potential lesson in itself. Recipes, activities, and fun facts (did you know carrots were once white?), as well as the now-expected index, glossary, and web sites to visit round the book out nicely, and can easily give you material for a week-long unit.
Any school or library serving preschoolers will want to have this set on hand. We give it a
5 out of 5.
