Animal Colors: A Rainbow of Colors from Animals Around the World
by Beth Fielding
Waynesville, NC : EarlyLight, c2009
Each two-page spread gives several examples of animals (or parts of animals) that are the same color. The animals shown include mammals, birds, insects, reptiles and amphibians. There are several individual colors as well as color combinations grouped together. My three-year old had fun trying to name each creature as well as telling me which ones he already knew were poisonous and we should never touch. A cute book with fun photos and brief, yet interesting facts that also helps reinforce color recognition in small children.
