As a grandfather to nine, I've read many books about color to toddlers and young children. In a word: boring. There is so much form and color in this world that cartoonish drawings do not communicate. So, I asked myself, "What in the world has enough primary colors to teach little ones?" My answer was either frogs or parrots. Then, I stumbled upon ""Histoire Naturelle des Perroquets"" by Francois Levaillant. While the 19th century French was difficult, the images were astounding. I had found the perfect medium for teaching colors to children everywhere. I hope you enjoy reading this book to your little ones. I certainly do."
