From carrots that are not purple, reindeer that are not white to the tranquil night-time ending, this is a fantastic introduction to colours.

Laura Vaccaro Seeger is an Emmy Award-winning artist and animator. Her first book The Hidden Alphabet was an American Literary Association Notable Children's Book, a Kirkus Editor's Choice and a Child Magazine Best Book of the Year. Laura lives close to the beach on Long Island, New York, with her husband, Chris, and their two young boys, Drew and Dylan. Her books for Frances Lincoln are Lemons are not Red and First the Egg.From School Library Journal:
PreS–The creator of The Hidden Alphabet (Roaring Brook, 2003) offers another visual treat. The text is appropriately spare. The first spread reads, "Lemons are not/ RED." The word "RED" appears on a bright yellow page beneath the die-cut shape of a lemon with a red background showing through. When the page is turned, the die-cut shape falls on the correct yellow background, with the words "Lemons are YELLOW" underneath. The red background of the facing page is revealed to be an apple, with the phrase, "Apples are RED." This framework continues throughout the book, and children will quickly catch on and join in the visual game. The paired objects are related, which gives the text an internal consistency. However, the choices never become predictable, so a sense of surprise is always maintained. For example, Seeger couples reindeer with snowmen, flamingos with elephants, and the moon with the night sky. Illustrated with richly colored yet simple oil paintings, this offering will delight preschoolers.–Robin L. Gibson, formerly at Perry County District Library, New Lexington, OH
