What a beautiful board book- identical to the little golden book but much sturdier. It was my favorite little golden book growing up and has lost none of it's appeal. The pictures are awesome. I've purchased 2 of these for gifts and would highly recommend it.

Margaret Wise Brown (author of Good Night Moon) consistently charms. This book reads like my imagination worked as a child - all wrapped up in improbably dreams and King James terminology. The Color Kittens are in pursuit of the elusive color green as they mix and match "buckets and buckets and buckets" of color. After several false starts, "it came to pass, they made a green as green as grass." I buy books I think will interest my little one, but I want to enjoy reading them as well. The Color Kittens passes that expectation with flying...colors.

I remember reading this book as a child, and I was always awestruck by the fanciful colors and scenes. From the Easter eggs dancing around on little legs, to the dog and the cat disappearing into a soft pink fog, I thought the book was pretty great. So I decided to pick it up for my littles. But, as I went to buy it, I thought back to the wrinkled and torn pages of their other books, and instead searched for a board version of The Color Kittens. BOOM, found it! I was thrilled. I was also glad to see that it was unabridged. Now we read it all the time, and I can let the kids browse it at will without my supervision without fearing paper cuts, torn pages, OR WORSE. ;)Seriously, if you don't like this book, you're a communist.

IMHO, this is the best Little Golden Book every written. I loved it when it was read to me as a preschooler, but kids as old as 2nd or 3rd grade still enjoy it. This is one of my favorite books to use for tutoring reading with grades 1 through 3. It's a quick read and little kids are excited about the "mystery" of how to mix different colors. As an added bonus, the kittens have no assigned race, class, or gender, which lets the kids identify with them however they want to. But the main reason I like to use this book is that I never get tired of reading it. Margaret Wise Brown really loved the sounds of language. This one is partly rhyme, partly prose, but even the prose sections flow like poetry.

This was one of my favorite stories as a child. I was fascinated with the story & the colorful pictures. I am in my fifties now. I purchased this book for my young nephew so hopefully, he will enjoy the story as much as I did. I always encouraged my children to read. I starting reading to them at a very young age. They were both great readers, did well in school & graduated college. Good reading skills is a must for any child.

One of my favorite books to read to my kids when they were young...and they loved it, too! Was so great to see it offered in a board book! Margaret Wise Brown wrote it to rhyme, so it has such a nice "flow" when you read it.

This is a sweet book to read with young preschoolers, my toddler requests this book several times a day, my older preschooler loves to read it and then do paint mixing projects. This is a great book to introduce colors to little ones.

This book is a "family memory" to be treasured. My grandmother read it to me (in her quavering voice) more than 50 years ago - I can still hear her in my mind. I have now picked up copies for some family friends, and one in advance for my new "grandchild to be."
