We are in the midst of a long unit in our One Year Old Preschool on colors and we have found lots of books we have loved.  And lots of them help toddlers to learn colors without being boring!  Here is a list of our favorite toddler color books:


Where is the Green Sheep? by Mem Fox – An absolute favorite around here, Where is the Green Sheep?  uses repetition to introduce many concepts (including colors and opposites)?  We have the version with both Spanish and English, which helps to create variety and teaches another language.

<>
Harold and the Purple Crayon by Crockett Johnson  Another favorite.  The prose is so clever even parents will get a kick out of this story.  Toddlers will enjoy the story and learn the color purple at the same time.  Very good for kids interested in drawing and art.

Goodnight Moonby Margaret Wise Brown. We used this one for the unit on the color green because it is set in the “great green room”, but the transition from black and white to color pages subtly teaches kids about colors, as well.

<>
Richard Scarry’s Colors  This book introduces colors and concepts that correspond to the colors.  It has the colors displayed in paint cans and has the characters painting the items throughout the book.  Great for reinforcing art concepts.

<>
My Very First Book of Colors by Eric Carle  This is a great seek and match book with the color on top and a picture on bottom.  It is also just a great way to introduce color names and words for the very youngest readers.

<>
Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What do you See? by Eric Carle.  A classic for a reason, this book explores animals and colors.  We love to read it with animal sounds.

<>
Captain Calamari’s Color Adventure(also titled Treasure Hunt) from Lamaze.  This is great for the youngest of readers and some versions come with a Captain Calamari stuffed animal.  I love to read this one in my best pirate voice.

<>
Press Here by Herve Tuliet.  I love, love, love this book!  Check out the promo video for it here.  This one works for the littlest of kids, but my daughter didn’t start to get it until around 18 months.  It is perfect for teaching the primary colors and cause and effect.

<>
Andy Warhol’s Colors by Susan Goldman Rubin.  A wonderful way to introduce art and art appreciation to your little ones.  This includes animals in unusual colors and a great rhyming scheme.
