Una introducción única a los colores de lo que comemos. A unique introduction to the colors we eat Apples are red/roja, corn is yellow/amarillo, and carrots are orange/anaranjado! The fruit and vegetables we eat reflect a rainbow of color.
Designer and artist Sara Anderson's delectable bilingual board book celebrates not only color and food, but how our food grows. The inventive conceptual design features thick, sturdy pages of graduated lengths, so from the very first page, children will gobble their way through the Spanish and English words for each color delicioso.
Bold, cut-paper illustrations capture a jubilant explosion of green/verde in a giant vegetable garden, the irresistible purple/morado of grapes on a grapevine, and of course the reddest roja of the shiniest, most perfect apple on the apple tree.
Ages 5 to 6, Grades P to 1
