Rated 4 out of 5 by from So Cute ~Disclaimer~ I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. This in no way affected my opinion of the book, or the content of my review. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Lily and Milo spend the day together playing in puddles, digging in the sandbox and drawing pictures. The whole time they play the reader is asked to find different coloured items for them. This book is a very interactive reading experience. When reading it with a child you can help them find colours and they can learn to look for them on their own. I really enjoyed the illustrations. I like when drawings have painted aspects to them. The story was also really cute and fun. I recommend this book to kids ages 2-4. 4/5⭐

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Colours easily learned... so fun! Kids will delight in this charming book with two very adorable little characters, Lily and Milo. They go about their daily activities incorporating colours into everything that they decide to do. The cute duo head out to play and need to wear their red boots because it's raining. After splashing in the puddles they end up in their sandbox to dig a big hole and they must choose only the green shovels to get the job done. Next a huge bouquet of multi-coloured balloons magically appear and together they decide yellow is their most favourite. Calling it a day they retrieve their blue cart to take them home from the park. It's been a very busy time for them and they are tired and thirsty.... oh oh!! They pick orange juice to quench their thirst. Great choice! Wanting to calm down and relax now they decide to draw a picture. They both get a big piece of white paper and use all the colours of felt-tip pens in the box to make a masterpiece.... well Lily did on her paper anyway. Find out what Milo decides to use as his canvas. It will make everyone giggle for sure. The very best part of the whole book is that the cute two ask you, the reader, to help them choose the proper colours that they are searching for. This clever, interactive book will have your child learning colours in no time flat and have a great time doing it. I highly, highly recommend this book.
