A pair of Laurent de Brunhoff titles starring everyone's favorite elephant offer education and adventure. In Babar's Book of Color, the hero's children and nephew learn their colors in Babar's studio, mixing paints while making portraits of appropriately hued animals, vegetables and other objects. Overlapping balloons demonstrate color combinations. Young Isabelle comes to her father's aid after he disappears from their campsite in Babar's Rescue. With the help of a lion, a monkey and a snake, she tracks him to a tribe of striped elephants in a hidden city. (Mar.)
