Pantone Colors by Pantone

This artful “first colors” book introduces children to 9 basic colors and 20 shades of each, but any art-lover, designer, or Pantone geek (like myself) would likely agree that Pantone Colors is so charming and smart, it’s appeal is universal. Have fun perusing greens—from clover to lizard, forest to pickle—and get lost in the variety of dark, light, and in-between tones of the rainbow.

Switching on the Moon: A Very First Book of Bedtime Poems collected by Jane Yolen & Andrew Fusek Peters, illustrated by G. Brian Karas

Yolen and Karas’ gorgeous midnight-blue volume of bedtime poetry includes a counting-sheep rhyme murmured by a sleepless shepherd: One ewe/One ram,/Two sheep,/One lamb,/Three sheep,/One flock,/ Four gates,/One lock,/Five folds,/One light,/Good dog,/Good night. Like Goodnight Moon, this is a comforting world with a wash of mystery.Preschool–kindergarten.
