Very young toddlers will appreciate Taste the Fruit! by Lizzy Doyle. In this high-color and high-contrast book, little ones are in for a visual treat learning about colors and fruit. As usual, books in this Indestructibles series are chew-proof, rip proof, nontoxic, and 100% washable. (durable book)
A bright and colorful board book for Bear fans is Bear Sees Colors by Karma Wilson. (board book)
Speaking of bears, check out Baby Bear Sees Blue by Ashley Wolff. I like that this one is a story and not just a naming colors book. It’s soft and gentle making it a nice one to read before nap. (board book)
Steve Light treats us to another book all about colors in Black Bird Yellow Sun. I love the simple yet rich text and illustrations in this one. (board book)
National Geographic books always have amazing photographs and they have a whole line of board books including one on colors. (board book)
Another book with delightful photographs and lots of them for each color is Colors by Shelley Rotner. Plus, this one includes actions for each color such as blue floating and green hopping. (board book and picture book)
Head into the British Museum to see all sorts of colors in Colors: Early Learning at the Museum. (board book)
My favorite Sandra Boynton book is Blue Hat, Green Hat. Both of my kids adored the book when they were little. Your toddler will love saying, “oops” as the characters mix up their clothing. Plus, they learn some of the basic colors. (board book)
Monsters Love Colors by Mike Austin is a fun, silly, and energetic book about colors. (picture book)
Brown Bear, Brown Bear by Bill Martin Jr. is a classic book for learning your colors! A perfect pick for toddlers. (board book or picture book)
Train lovers will love Freight Train by Donald Crews. Each car on the train is a different color. This one works well for toddlers and preschoolers. (board book or picture book)
My First Colors, Let’s Learn Them All by Davis and Sirett was the first book that truly showed me how quickly my son was recognizing new words. I’d say this was the book he learned how to recognize colors with too. This one holds a place in the cedar chest as a keepsake for him when he is older. (board book)
Penguins Love Colors by Sarah Aspinall is geared towards little ones learning their colors. It doesn’t get cuter than penguins named Broccoli, Dandelion, Violet and more. (picture book)
