Is your child learning about colors? From Dr. Seuss to Pete the Cat, discover 13 children’s books about colors your child will love.
He’ll think this is cheesy, I thought. I had just borrowed Press Here by Herve Tullet and began reading it with my then-toddler. The book is all about interaction, from shaking the red, yellow and blue dots off the page to blowing them away.
But I was surprised—my son not only pressed here and there, he shook and blew those dots away.
Books are like that, which is why I love sharing my favorites with you. In this article, I list all my favorite children’s and preschool books about colors.
Learning colors and telling them apart is one of those things kids pick up on their own. I don’t remember when my kids learned colors, but we made sure to talk about them often. For instance, my husband and I would say, “Here’s your blue sippy cup” or “Do you like your orange shoes?” Including colors in their everyday vocabulary helped them recognize and identify colors.
And as usual, we read tons of books about colors as well. These are my top 13 favorites to start. Check out these children’s books about colors. I hope you’ll find a few favorites of your own.
