Colors, colors everywhere! Can you find colors just like Bear? Karma Wilson's playful text and Jane Chapman's adorable illustrations introduce colors to the youngest Bear fans, who will delight in discovering a rainbow of fun.


Age Group 24 months

What’s Happening at this Age

  • Pretending to read books
  • Finishing sentences in their favorite books
  • Scribbling on paper
  • Knowing names of books and identifying them by the picture on the cover
  • Turning pages right to left
  • Making connections between pictures and real life, like noticing their own shoes when they see a picture of shoes.

A whole lot of learning goes into how your toddler is interacting with books now! You’ve been reading to them for two years and now they know how to hold the book so their stuffed animals can see the pictures when your toddler “reads” to them. Your child may even be pointing out interesting things on the page and asking questions just like you do when you read to them. They likely have a favorite book that they want you to read, and that they may even pretend to read to you. This may not seem important as they’re “just pretending” but they’re doing all the things a skilled reader does without actually reading the text. This pretending is an important part of becoming a reader. When they “read” to you, it’s your turn to say, “Again! Again!” and know that you’re building a reader!

Why did we select this book?

Your little one is becoming so much more aware of the world, pointing to things and asking "What is that?" over and over! This is because two year-olds are on the very edge of a language explosion. Over the next year, you'll find that your little one learns new words at a surprising rate. Even though they may not be using the new words, the "word bank" of words they understand is growing. Books like this one with concept words (like colors), help build the "word bank" that help children talk about their world.
