The Big Book of Color is a extremely engaging and interactive children's book about the colors and shades of the rainbow. The cover is beautiful, bright, and attractive and immediately grabs your attention. 

The book explains and explores the colors of the rainbow and how colors can affect you and the world around you. The book explains several different tools and items that you can use when learning about color. The color wheel was a neat way of explaining the different types of colors and then the author allows the reader to work with the different colors and encourages interaction throughout the book. 

Everything in this book is so realistic and I loved how the author incorporated nature and animals throughout the books as examples of color. 

My favorite part of the entire book was where the author added interesting facts throughout the book in order to encourage learning and initiate the curiosity of the reader. This was a fantastic children's book that was not only informative but FUN and engaging for the reader!!
