Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

A red alarm clock, a blue mitten, a yellow baby shoe and a purple flower are the first cheery photographs in Red, Blue, Yellow Shoea book about color. Panda, Panda displays a real panda in a natural-looking setting, progressing from eating, drinking, rolling and climbing to yawning, resting and, finally, sleeping. Children will relate to both board books: the counting objects are toy-bright (some really are toys), and the panda's seemingly lazy pursuit of creature comforts is engaging. As with all of Hoban's acclaimed photo books, these are deliberately simple, and perfect for the very young. (9 months-3 years)

From School Library Journal

ea. vol: photogs. by author. unpaged. CIP. Greenwillow. Oct. 1986. BD $3.95. PreS Distinctive photographs of a distinctive animal make Panda, Panda appropriate for a wide age range. A panda is shown in a variety of engaging activities and poses: eating, drinking, playing, and finally sleeping. Each picture is accompanied by a word in bold red type describing the activity. As usual with Hoban, outstanding photographs and design make this a special toddler book. The second title is a simpler board book version of Hoban's Is It Red? Is It Yellow? Is It Blue? (Greenwillow, 1978). Photographs of objects familiar and engaging to babies and toddlers are centered on a white background, with the color name and a corresponding solid color dot below the picture. It's a standout in Hoban's distinctive style, and a must for all toddler collections. Linda Wicher, Lincolnwood Public Lib., Ill.

This book is a favorite at our house! The durable book has one large, colorful photograph of a common item on each page. The item's name and color are printed at the bottom (yellow shoe, red clock, black cat, etc.). It's easy for little hands to turn the pages as well as focus on each page. So many children's books these days seem to have TOO much information on each page. This book finds a way to attract the reader in a simple way with its beautiful photographs.

My daughter really enjoys this book. It is simple and gives toddlers a chance to learn their colors. We've read it so many times my daughter who is two can now read it herself!

As my son grew older and more interested in colors, I looked for a book that would delight him as much as "Black on White" (also by Tana Hoban) had when he was an infant. I thought this book would fill that description, but it didn't quite fit the bill. It has great photographs, but no text.
Despite the catchy, rhyming title, each page shows only a picture of the item: No rhyming text is involved. Although my son likes the brightly colored pictures, he is more interested when I read books with rhythmic texts, such as "Blue Hat, Green Hat" by Sandra Boynton.

We have six children, and this is/was the hands-down favorite of all our children as toddlers. We received it as a gift when our 13 yo was a baby, and now our toddler twins are enjoying it. I believe our children learned their color names from this book. They also like Hoban's "Black on White." I wouldn't hesitate to buy this for any under 2's you might have.

I love Tana Hoban so when I found she did colored images I was very excited. The photos are nice, crisp and right on target with the colors. Simple color learning book.

My 1-1/2 year old daughter loves this book. She is learning her colors. There are eight pictures with one color including a red clock, blue mitten, yellow show, purple flower, an orange, green leaf, brown bear and black cat. The color is spelled out at the bottom of each page. So many of the books teaching colors have too many items on a page. I think this one is wonderful for young toddlers. It's great for the bath too.
