A Color Game for Chester Raccoon

Audrey Penn, illus. by Barbara L. Gibson. Tanglewood, $7.95 (14p) ISBN 978-1-933718-58-3
In Chester Raccoon’s second board book, he and his friends identify colors in the woods—a “cornflower blue” flower, a yellow balloon, an orange butterfly, and a red apple for Owl Teacher. Gibson creates a lighthearted forest environment for expressive Chester and his companions, while Penn encourages readers to observe the world around them: “You can play too!/ You can play day or night./ Find Chester’s colors/ Beginning with white.” Ages 1–3.
