Our Score: 4 out of 5 stars

Now that I have a 7 month old daughter, I have realized the importance of board books.  The Nutbrown Hares are such a cute bunch of characters.  They are simple books yet they are still educational.  This edition focuses on “Colors”.  It is very short running only 14 pages but is very good way for kids to learn about colors.  My daughters favorite color (or so we think right now) is green and she really lit up when that page came around in this book.

Official Synopsis: Is there a color that Little Nutbrown Hare doesn’t like? Here’s a beautiful red flower to sniff, a blue-winged bird to make friends with, yellow daisies to pick, and a leaping green frog to chase. But when it comes to brown, that’s a color to love, not just like — especially if it’s related to Big Nutbrown Hare!

The author of the book is Sam McBratney, who is behind the “Guess How Much I Love You” series and teamed up again with Anita Jeram, who is the illustrator of these storybooks.  There is something about Anita’s illustrations that I just love and I know my daughter appreciates very much.  These board books really deliver a lot in a very small amount of space.  I can’t wait till the next chapter is released. If you have young babies or toddlers, then I highly recommend this to entertain and still learn.
