From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-Grade 2-Simple but flawed concept books, printed in large type with difficult words highlighted. Blue tells of a boy who has a parakeet, eats blueberries, and wears blue clothes. Children may be confused by the text, which states that the parakeet "is not a bluebird" when it clearly is light blue in color. Later, the child says that he is wearing three pieces of blue clothing yet it is obvious that he is wearing a blue shirt, a blue coat, as well as blue jeans and a blue hat. In the next book, a boy wears green, sees green in his yard and in the woods, and eats a green salad for dinner. The photographs do not always illustrate the color effectively. A supposedly green animal looks decidedly like a brown toad, and moss is yellow. In the third book, a red-headed girl gives examples of things that are her favorite color. Readers see her cart red apples in her red wagon and give red flowers to her mother on her birthday. The text explains that "Some flowers are dark red and some flowers are light red." The accompanying photograph, however, shows a bouquet of carnations, tulips, and gerber daisies all the same shade of red, neither dark nor light. Confusing, at best.
