Review: Bear Sees Colours

“Colours, colours EVERYWHERE! Can you find colours, just like Bear?”

Bear and his animal friends are exploring the great outdoors and Bear sees wonderful colours all around them: blue, red, yellow, green, and brown.

As each colour is revealed, readers are presented with a double-page spread awash in the designated colour. It’s filled with things of that particular colour to find, like blue water, blue fish, blue dragonfly, blue butterfly … and lots more.

This is a cute story and a fun way to examine the concept of colours. Young children will love Bear and his friends, and be able to spend a long time pouring over the pictures looking for the different coloured items.

Read Bear Sees Colours then try playing a colour version of ‘I Spy’ around the house.
