Rabbits do carrots and so do chickens cantaloupe Goats and pigs do too And gorillas wait Gorillas don’t eat orange they eat green In this rhythm the reader follows the diets of different animals large and small from different areas around the globe – ocean farm forest etc – each themed around a different color At last the reader is shown a rainbow of food – all delicious natural foods of the human dietWhat a clever concept It seems complicated and feels a little hard to explain but works so well in the finished product JJ was eager to name both the colors and the animals all of which are illustrated with stunning realism in mixed media patterns and vibrant colors The text that signaled the transition between colors was a little awkward to read aloud and might have been phrased a little differently It’s a minor complaint than made up for in the uality of art and information on the animals their diets and their habitats in the backmatter The length was perfect for storytime and JJ loved it This is a really great book for learning about animals from around the world reinforcing color concepts and is just plain beautiful to look at We definitely recommend it – Baby Bookworm approved Note A copy of this book was provided to The Baby Bookworm by a representative of the author in exchange for an honest reviewBe sure to check out The Baby Bookworm for reviews Asking which animals eat what colors allows this book to explore both animals and colors at the same time Starting with the title uestion the book looks at bunnies eating carrots chickens pecking cantaloupe goats biting oranges and pigs munching pumpkins But what about a gorilla? No gorillas eat green And the book merrily moves on to that color and then on to other food colors as well The animals are varied and interesting including turkeys foxes uetzals marmots reindeer and many The book ends asking you about the colors you eat and revealing the rainbow of food that humans enjoyWhite has created an energetic picture book that has a strong structure that young children will find enticing She has selected the featured animals cleverly using both familiar animals and exotic animals side by side The book’s structure includes asking about a different animal to move to the new color of food leading very nicely into the final part of the book as wellThe digital illustrations have a great physicality about them feeling like paper collage than digital on the page Each of the animals has a great light in their eyes looking back at the reader usually with a playful and inviting glint while not being anthropomorphized at allA great book for the youngest set that introduces colors and animals and allows for some guessing games as well Appropriate for ages 2 4 First sentence Who eats orange? Bunnies in their hutches do Chickens in the henhouse too Who else eats orange? Goats Pigs Gorillas too Gorillas? No Gorillas don't eat orange They eatPremiseplot This nonfiction concept book focuses on the colors various animals eatMy thoughts I picked this one up because of the awesome cover It said to me READ ME READ ME I had high expectations because of the cover The book didn't meet those high expectations but that says about me than the book itself If you choose a book based solely on a cover without reading any reviews then that's a risk you take being disappointedSo this one goes through a rainbow of colors White chooses a few animals to highlight per color My slight issue with the book again this says about me is that animals rarely eat just one color So while bunnies do eat orange carrots they eat plenty of other vegetables that are not orange You could just as easily list them under green I read the notes on each animal and often than not the animals eat a rainbow of colors It just seems arbitrary to me to assign one color per animalText 2 out of 5Illustrations 4 out 5Total 6 out of 10
