This board book primer introduces young readers to colors via works of art from the British Museum. Each spread focuses on a different color, featuring several photographs of art objects. An image of grapes taken from a drawing by Michiel van Huysum represents the color purple, an Egyptian mummy mask represents the color gold, and black objects include a Japanese woodblock print by artist Kobayashi Kiyochika. The items offer striking visual delights; readers may be inspired to locate both colors and comparable objects within their surroundings. Also available in the series: 123, ABC, and Opposites. Ages up to 3. (Jan.)
