2004 Award
Carlo Likes Colors
(y Jessica Spanyol, Candlewick $14.95 Score:) There is more than one color on each of these pages, so this is not a beginner’s concept book. The pages are busy and full of details to look at. For the very young this can be a distraction. For the older preschooler it will be a discovery game. Also, see Carlo Likes Counting & Carlo Likes Reading. 4–6.
