My Colors Book

Patricia Mitter. Cornell Lab (Legato, dist.), $8.95 (24p) ISBN 978-1-943645-43-5
This inviting avian board book, one of two launch titles in the Early Birds series, highlights the colors of 10 birds. The main text mentions other items of the same color (“A hummingbird is green, green like the grass”), and small captions introduce additional questions and details (a gray pigeon “walks on the ground to look for seeds. Peck, peck, peck”). Mitter’s handsome bird portraits, which appear on right-hand pages, carefully reflect the attributes of each bird and use high-contrast backdrops to give the featured colors an added boost. A free companion app lets readers hear the songs of all 10 birds. Simultaneously available: My Numbers Book. Ages 1–3. (Aug.)
