Animal Colors - School Library Journal

This series features the happy melding of two popular early childhood topics: colors and animals. The opening spreads provide brief information on the color (whether it’s primary or secondary) and include a color wheel and mixing chart. White is described as the starting point for color, with pigments added to make different colors. Eight animals are featured per book, divided into three sections: land, air, and water. Each spread is comprised of a large, close-up photo of the animal and two to three descriptive sentences. A selection of extensions is available on the site.

These will be great additions to color units and popular for individual use as well as for group sharing.
