The Review

I received a complimentary advance copy of Dear Baby It's a Colorful World by Carol Casey.  The jacket cover of this perfectly sized hard back book was full of bright colors and included a multi-cultural cast of children.  The colors used are perfect to stimulate and peak a little one's curiousity. 

I may be one of those old fashion type but I like my little children's books to rhyme and this one does a perfect job.  I love to be able to read to my children with a whimsical type voice and when the words go together, it makes it more fun.  

Here is an example:

I'm ready to go,
my eyes open wide.

A colorful world is
waiting inside!

It's chalked full of bright colors, familar shapes and fun pictures.  Each set of pages consists of a different scenes with this host of cute characters.

Another great feature is the back page that allows for those that read the book to the child to sign.  This is a great memory to have as the child turns into an adult and hands over to his own child.

I would definitely recommend this wonderful and colorful book to any parent and if you don't have children, it would make an ideal gift!
