An exciting easy-to-read tale introduces preschoolers to shapes and colors through pages of boldly illustrated hunt-and-find games in which youngsters help Florence, a black-and-white cow, take part in a fun-filled treasure hunt.

From Publishers Weekly:

This lively and versatile concept book helps kids learn to identify colors and shapes. Blackstone and Harter, previously paired for Who Are You?, challenge readers to find a single item in each mixed-media cartoon scene of cheerful bedlam ("Can you see the blue flower?" on one page; "Can you see the orange tower?" on the next). While the objects can take some effort to find in spreads teeming with activity, the proximity of Florence, a goofy-looking cow, helps (she jumps over the white moon, cowers on a chair to escape the gray mouse and waves a handkerchief from the orange tower). The borders of each scene list other objects in the same shade as the item highlighted, so while the youngest readers can settle for finding the yellow star, for example, older ones can hunt through a Christmas scene for yellow presents, yellow lights and yellow birds. And there are plenty of other diversions in additional colors, and striped or spotted patterns (like Holstein Florence). The density of humorous visual detail?including mice stacking up to reach the refrigerator handle, an alien spooking a ghost, a sheep blowing on a dandelion?offers kids plenty of amusement. Ages 2-5.

From School Library Journal:

PreSchool-K-Busy pages swarming with colors and shapes make this concept book an entertaining challenge. Spare text asks readers to locate an item of a specific color among the jumbled medley of cartoon animals and objects on each double-page spread. Sidebars list between 9 and 11 additional items that can also be identified. Every page features Florence, a black-and-white cow who, it readily becomes obvious, is always located near the sought-after object. However, some of the identifications mentioned in the sidebars will take a few moments to locate. The brightly colored, humorous pictures are truly captivating. Young children will pore over this book, searching for items the way older children search for objects in the "Waldo" books or the "I Spy" books (Scholastic). Color identification has never been so clever or so much fun.
