Pirate Nap: A Book of Colors

Danna Smith, illus. by Valeria Petrone. Clarion, $14.99 (40p) ISBN 978-0-547-57531-5
It’s naptime on Spyglass Street, but under the watchful eye of their bemused mother, two toddler-aged pirates have different ideas. Smith’s solid rhymes introduce primary colors as the two swashbucklers search high and low for treasure of different colors at home: “Yellow treasures buried deep./ Lucky pirates. Loot to keep.” Though the color element feels secondary to the adventure, Petrone’s peppy digital graphics deliver both tongue-in-cheek humor and a kid’s-eye perspective on pretend play. Up to age 3.
