Books About Colour!


Books About Colour // 3 Top Books We Have Been Using To Learn About Colour // www.lukeosaurusandme.blogspot.co.uk



Hello!

As part of my effort to try and teach Luke a bit more about colours, I have been reading a few books to him and pointing out various things on each page (Peppa's dress is red, she's wearing a red dress.) He seems to really enjoy this and has been taking the time to study each page. 

The first book we have been reading (a lot!) is the Peppa Pig Colours [Neville Astley & Mark Baker] board book. You probably will have seen this if you follow me on Instagram. Luke is loving this book. Each page has a different colour and goes through familiar characters. For instance: Rebecca Rabbit's carrot costume is orange/Peppa Pig's balloon is blue/Peppa Pig is wearing a red dress and red shoes. On the last page, there's a double spread of paint splodges and it asks what your favourite colour is. This page is really useful to go over all the colours again once you've read through the book. Luke has read this dozens of times every day. I think it's his favourite.

Our very battered copy! 

Secondly, another board book, but this time it's Spot Looks At Colours [Eric Hill]. We bought this early on in the week once we saw how much Luke was enjoying the Peppa Pig board book - we actually bought it from the 99p shop! (Although I think it's only meant to be sold as part of a set - naughty pound shop!) You can't really go wrong with Eric Hill and the illustrations are as charming as ever. I love this book, it's my favourite of the bunch. Luke really likes it too and it's pretty much the same as the Peppa Pig one, only at the end there's no overview of all the colours.

Lastly, this is a book I have been reading to Luke at nap times and bed times. For some reason when it comes to books, he's really boisterous at the moment and wants to rip up pages and just generally be a right pain in the bum. Colour Me Happy [Shen Roddie and Ben Cort] is an enchanting paper back story that follows an adorable little kitten on a journey where every page brings a colourful and vibrant adventure. When I am sunny, colour me yellow/When I am funny, colour me pink. There's also a really sparkly rainbow at the end! The illustrations are quite charming and funny and convey a range of emotions that Luke laughs at and older children will be able to understand.

Awww I love looking at books! I'm Pregnant at the moment and already have a small collection for the bump when he arrives. x

They look like very good books. M is fab at her colours, I am constantly asking her what everything is and she knows them all! These books look really good though for teaching :-) #mummymonday

Great review, the Peppa one sounds the best! My boy strangely enough started naming colours when we bought him Playdoh when he was 18 months. He only named orange and blue first, and then gradually learnt the other colours, without us prompting him. Who knew Playdoh could be educational! #mummymonday Sabrina x

Oh my gosh, looking at books when I was pregnant was probably my favourite thing to do. After a while I got fed up of clothes, and all the female relatives/friends wanting to go clothes shopping. I used to spend ages in supermarkets reading books for Luke and I bought loads for him before I even knew if he was a boy or a girl. So I am totally with you on that one. Thank you so much for reading. xx

Bless her, that's really good! Luke is constantly counting things...but really he only knows two and three, but everything is mainly two. Hehehe. I think he is starting to get the hang of the colours now though, these books are great. :) Thanks for reading. xx

The Peppa one is pretty awesome, just having that last page with all the colours on really makes the difference, I think. :) Haha, wow that's great. Maybe I should go and buy him some new Playdoh ;) Thank you for reading! xx

We are always working on learning colours with Daughter. I think she almost has most of them done but there is always her little brother to teach. Definitely need to visit your blog more often. Lots of good posts.

Aww. I am glad you think so, thank you! :) It's a tricky one to teach I think, I am finding it hard to try and not confuse him. Thanks for reading xx
