    One thought on “Pantone: Colors”

    1. Probably written for the children of designers. I love that it shows many shades of each color and gives them all names. A fresh take on an old idea.

    2. First of all who doesn't love finding out at the beginning of every year what the color of the year is going to be?! That is one of my favorite things to find out and this book just made me even more excited about colors. Each color red through black, has about 20 more other shades of that staple color. For example there is Red and connected to red are pantone colors such as coral red, ruby red, velvet red, etc. The colors and illustrations in this book are great! I actually want to buy this boo [...]

    3. Written by the Pantone Color System, Pantone: Colors dedicates a two page spread to the three primary colors (red, blue, yellow), the three secondary colors (green, orange, purple), four neutrals (brown, white, black, gray), and two tints (pink, gray). The colors are grouped into warm colors, followed by cool colors, and ending with neutrals. Unlike other concept books designed to teach very young children colors, this book features 20 different shades for each color (all labeled with their name [...]

    4. Pantone: Colors is a fictional board book that introduces young readers to nine basic colors with twenty shades of each one. Each individual color refers to a number of other dark, light and middle tones. The color that is being introduced is presented with an animal, and the other values are presented in a table with names listed on top of the colors. This book is visually pleasing and is arranged in a nice, neat order that is easy to follow. I gave this book five stars because I believe that P [...]

    5. An introduction to basic colors (yellow, orange, red, pink, purple, blue, green, brown, white/gray/black). Each two page spread shows an object displaying the color mirroring a paleete of 20 shades of the color complete with descriptive names such as eggplant and monster purple.A fun extension activity to try with this book would be to match the shade of favorite toys and household items to a color featured in the book. It's interesting to put a name on a color that makes you feel an emotion lik [...]

    6. This sure is a pretty book, with an embossed cover, matte board pages, and simple, flat pictures on a white background. Each page highlights a color, with 20 tiles in various shades of that color, and an image opposite using some of the colors. I don't think a lot of color concept books address shades, so that's a cool new twist. I wish the book's pictures had actually used all 20 colors, but it doesn't look like that's the case. The color names are fun (Macaroni and Cheese Orange, Tongue Pink, [...]

    7. My Review: This book teaches children about basic colors and shades. It takes one basic color Yellow and matches it with 20 shades like Taxicab Yellow, Lemon Yellow, Corn Yellow, School Bus Yellow and so on. This is a great book not only for kids but for adults.

All opinions expressed here are mine and mine alone.

    8. I love the idea of this book. And overall, it's well-executed. For youngest kids, it makes sense that there is repetition in the color names -- all the greens are X Green, all the blues are X Blue, etc. But it would have more room to grow with them if it included extended color vocabulary like celadon, sage, turquoise, magenta, crimson, etc.Only quibble with the art is that the purple balloons look like the artist REALLY wanted to do grapes instead. The baby is particularly fond of looking at th [...]

    9. My art loving husband just brought this book home and I think it is wonderful. It introduces a color with an image and then shows a series of variations on the color. It is great introduction to the wide world of color for young children. My son is very engaged in this book because it is so vivid. He is very satisfied looking through all the colors. This book is an accessible introduction to some color theory in a way.

    10. Giant Board Book! I love this large size hardcover board book. It has become a wonderful educational tool. Not only is it great for us to discuss the varying shades of colors together, but my almost preschooler will often go through this one alone telling me, or reading aloud rather, what all she sees. Then on top of everything else is the added bonus of the last page that provides tons of I Spy fun. *Thanks Abrams*

    11. I have no idea what Pantone is or does (the article I read didn't help), but whatever the case may be, my son with autism really really likes me to read aloud the lists of different colors that comprise this book. Some of them I take issue with, especially the purples. Pillow purple? Kazoo purple? Huh? The book is quite appealingly designed though, so I can see why the boy likes it.

    12. This is a colors book the likes of which I hadn't seen before. For each page spread, the right hand side has a full page displaying one of the basic colors. Then, the left is broken into sixteen (?) squares showing different shades of the color. Its very nice to look at. A great way to talk about shades with an older child.

    13. Not a great choice for a read-aloud, but a wonderful reference on colors and enjoyable to page through. The shades used on each of the pages are diverse and vibrant, and I love how so many different ones are used to illustrate each individual color. The final page containing a collage of objects in multiple hues is very fun!

    14. A fun board book. My early reader likes to read all the color names and to match them with the images in back (where applicable). I'm just tickled by the idea of a Pantone book for kids, and I like that it shows such a wide range of colors.

    15. I believe I liked this book more than my children. Asa a graphic Designer I found the book intriguing and full of color.

    16. I love the bright colors! It's great for teaching toddlers their colors, or would also work well for older kids doing an art study on monochromatic colors. It is stunning and simple.

    17. I enjoyed trying to determine the Pantone color and exact hue of my nesting cups while looking through this book.

    18. This is a great book for kids of all ages. My daughter and I have used this book to learn colors as well as play games with the colors. It's really a great piece of art work.

    19. sturdy. helpful for children to see the variations of a color, which often doesn't happen in children's lit,

    20. Your favorite part of this was the back cover with all of the differently colored things we would practice finding and pointing out (like pink flamingos, brown deer, blue whale)

    21. I love this book. I love the colours. I love the illustrations. I love everything about it and I could look it at it over and over again.

    22. Great baby gift. Especially for that designer friend who knows what red 179c looks like. Cute intro to color book. A current day soon-to-be classic
