Nolan, my three-year-old, loves to pick out his own books at the library. I am always surprised by what he grabs. I shouldn't be -- it usually involves a monkey. His latest pick is The Color Box by Dayle Ann Dodds. No offense meant by this, but I would never have picked it up in a million years. By now I should have learned to trust his instincts. I have read this book over and over and over for the past two weeks. The boys both love it, but it's especially geared for ages 2-4. The text is full of rhyme and repetition. The artwork is cut paper collage by Giles Laroche. A color concept book, each page focuses on a new color and features a cut-out that leads to the next page. Nolan loves peek holes in books; they are endlessly fascinating to him. A monkey, bold use of color, rhyme, repetition and cut-outs -- what more could a little boy want?
