Read the Rainbow:
9 Illuminating Color Books for Babies

by Janssen Bradshaw

I love teaching my children their colors.

It’s one of the earlier skills they can pick up and there are opportunities to practice all around, whether you’re walking through the grocery store, playing at the playground, or getting dressed in the morning (or the afternoon. No judgment here!).

My toddler is still at the stage where every color is “boo,” but she’s getting a little better every day. These are some of my favorite books to help little ones learn all the colors of the rainbow.
