This book is okay for everyday objects, dress, ball, tricycle, but not for learning colors. The name of the objects as well as the color are listed instead of focusing on the name of the color being addressed. Also some of the colors were not very well defined, for example, pink was so dark it looked almost red and the red shoes looked pink, the shade of gray used was too dark, nearly black, and too many of the objects had more than one color (ball was blue and white, coat was black and white) instead of being a solid color to go with the color that page was focusing on.

This book is sturdy, durable, visually interesting, well-designed and a great place to launch an infant's interest in books, photos and naming the real-life images he/she sees every day. Bright Baby Colors is part of a wonderful series of board books which includes Bright Baby Animals and Bright Baby First Words (both of which I also highly recommend). Rather than confusing an infant's eyes with an array of images all at once, the nice thing about these books is that they are laid out very simplistically with one photograph and word per page on a solid-colored background. No clutter and no distractions. For the infant who is just starting to point at everything in the world and seek "identification tags", this entire series is the perfect first set of books.

Ever since he was an infant, my son has kept coming back to these books. I think it is because they can be easily adapted to teach a variety of concepts and they evolve to meet his constantly changing points of interest. I agree with the previous reviewer that a few of the color choices are not as well depicted as they could be. (E.g., gray is depicted as so dark that it is almost black, and pink is shown in such a dark shade that it is almost red.) However, this is a minor point, and I still give this book five stars for the simple visual images it provides, the focused learning it encourages, and the variety of ways in which it can be used to teach not just colors, but also other words and concepts. With its great photography of everyday, real-life, 'round-the-house images set against simple, solid backgrounds, this book is definitely a solid choice with which to start your child's home library!

This is an interesting and colorful book with excellent photos. Each two page spread has five items of the color and a cut out circle showing part of an item with a question. For example, the red page shows cherries, dress, car, fish, drum, and the question by the cutout is "This helps to put out fires. What is it?" Lifting the flap shows a fire truck. The photos are excellent and the book design adds interest. The 2005 edition is an improved redesign of an earlier edition. Karen Woodworth Roman

We have this book for our baby and now give it as a gift to anyone we know having a baby. It is a great book to introduce colors and everyday things such as a spoon, dress, cat, etc. Since it's a board book, we let our daughter play with it so she can practice turning pages and for the price, we don't mind her chewing on it. This book is one of 4 in a series and we highly recommend them for any parent and baby.

My daughter is 18 months and this generally is a great book series. We have three of them. Colors is my second favorite (next to First Words). My daughter has learned these words (about half at this point) and the book is a terrific way to reinforce the words. We turn the page and ask her; she loves to tell us what the object is. One concern is that at her age, adding the color component is too complicated and means there are some words like black jacket and gold stars, that are much more difficult than purple grapes, for example. Perhaps this means the book will become more valuable when she is a little older and starts to learn colors.

The books also are beautiful and bright.

My 10-month-old absolutely loves this book. Sometimes I walk into the room and she's picked it up and is laughing at the pictures. The images are clear, the colors and bright and beautiful. There is no story, just the printed word of the image and the color, so it has a flash-card-like quality, which will be useful when she's a little older and learning to speak and identify things and colors. The pictures are also fun...she cracks up every time we get to the page with the kitten on one side and the little boy on the other (black kitten, black coat on the boy). I highly recommend this one.

A family member bought this book for my son last christmas. He's now 16 months, so he was pretty young when he got this but loved it and still does! He looks at it everyday. He's glued to the pages when I read it to him. It's a very simple and colorful book which makes it good for young ones. I have to add, I read a review saying the color of the pink in this book is very dark and nearly red... The pink in my book is the same color pink as the front cover showed on here, which is a regular pink color.

I have three of thes bright baby books. My son is now 2, but has been looking at them since he was about 15months. He can say all of them. We read him stories and that is fine, but he really likes to point things out and tell you what they are. He gets a satisfaction of knowing that he knows something. Other books are fine for reading but he seems to gravitate towards these. I like how there is one thing on each page and the colors are bright and nice to look at. You won't be sorry with these books. :)

This book is a good size and has nice bright colors. It features common items that are worth learning for a small child. I do not think a child could successfully learn from this book alone, but with a parent to clarify what everything is, I believe it is a good learning tool.
The pictures are realistic not cartoon drawings which I appreciate.
Only complaint is the font makes the 'm' look weird, which is kind of important when you are teaching.
