Review

 "Attention midcentury modern parents: The glorious work of Charley Harper, a visionary American illustrator, is here in board book format to complement your toddler's Oeuf bouncer and Dwell crib. Close-up extracts from classic Harper drawings are artfully used to illustrate colors...certain to mesmerize all ages." —The New York Times Book Review

About the Author

 

ILLUSTRATOR BIO
For over four decades, Charley Harper (1922-2007) provided art collectors with unique views of the natural world. In a style that Charley called "minimal realism," the artist created stylized drawings and paintings that captured the essence of his subjects using the fewest possible elements. He explained, "I don't count the feathers; I just count the wings."
 

DESIGNER BIO

Gloria Fowler is the Design Director of AMMO Books, a long time instructor at Art Center College of Design, and a mom with two kids.  She is the designer of a line of children's books and toys featuring the work of artist Charley Harper.

That makes it enjoyable for slightly older children as well.

I received a copy of Colors from the publisher for review.

My three-year-old daughter and I read this one together. She is just learning to read and mastering all the different colors. The illustrations are vibrant and very visually pleasing. I love how the text is in the color as well, to help the child recognize the color name. The prose is easy for a beginning reader with a few more challenging words tossed in to help build vocabulary. My daughter wanted to read it over and over again!

I definitely recommend this one for toddler/preschool readers!

I really like this book. I got it for my one year old (confession, it's for both of us) and was pleasantly surprised at the artwork. I love Charlie Harper and I'm hoping it will transpire to my little guy. My only problem with the book is that it's too short. I guess if it was bigger, though, it would be too heavy for kids.

The colors really capture my little ones attention. He loves to sit there and "read" them. At 16 months I know he's just babb;ing and pretending but it's still nice to see!
