out of all the color books I ordered this one is our favorite. My son loves that he can touch the gray. And then we turn the page and more colors come out. We read this almost every night.

We love this book and also the press here book. My son is 1 and he already picks this book up all the time and wants to read it. As an adult I appreciate this book as well, it’s a really neat book for kids to feel like they are changing the colors of the paint with their fingers. I would recommend his book to everyone and I gift it as gifts a lot to my family and friends kids as well.

This author is great for kids aged 2-5. This particular title is fun for littles learning about colors or for those who already know the combinations but want to take it to the level of actually mixing. If that's the case, I like to give finger paints along with the book as a gift so that they can actually try things out for themselves. If you prefer the no-mess route, the book on its own gives the reader the opportunity to "mix" colors and see the result.
