Featured Children's Book: What color is it? by Bobbie Kalman

Crabtree Publishing Company, 2007

In this entertaining new book, Bobbie Kalman shows examples in nature that correspond with each color in the rainbow. There are also examples of color opposites such as white and black. Children will also enjoy learning how to combine certain colors to make new colors such as pink, brown, green, and orange. For ages 4-7.

What color is it? is one in a series of books by Bobbie Kalman. The Looking at Nature series describes primary-level basics, such as shape, color, pattern, texture, size, sequence, and location. What makes this series so different is that all of the examples, shown in photographs, come from nature and foster a greater understanding and interest in the natural world. Children will look at nature in a very different way after reading these books! Other books in the series are: What shape is it?, Is it the same or different?, What comes next?, Is it big or small?, Where is it?, and How does it look?.
