This book is a pain to read. Like many of Carle's books it has a gimmick --in this case two panels. One with a color and one with a picture. It is meant to be a game, I suppose, but I found it both tedious and distracting
the art is pretty though.

This book is not fun to read because it's such a pain to match the pages. It also doesn't hold my little one's interest at all. Some of the Eric Carle books are awesome, and some I feel are just created to make money because he's so famous. Skip this one.
For some reason, I hadn't heard of this book until Jace picked it up at the library. Each page in the book is cut in two, halfway down the page. There are colors on top and objects in that color on the bottom and you have to turn the page to match the colors together. Super interesting concept! This is a book we'll have to add to our own collection (along with the word and shapes one as well!)
I normally love Eric Carle, but this "My Very First Book" series is a big miss for me. His art is still great to look at, but this matching is took difficult. Of all the books in the series, I would say this one is the easiest for a child to use.

Holly loves this one! the top half of the book has colors and the bottom half has pictures of different colored things--you flip between them to find the match. It's a book and a game in one! perfect for 6 month to one year old.
