Fine artists are paired with early learning concepts in this groundbreaking series for the toddler set. Henri Matisse's abstract cut-outs are used to teach colors in this polished read-aloud board book. Blue & Other Colors takes children through Matisse's color palette, one artwork per page, beginning with blue and returning to it as a familiar refrain throughout. The variance of shapes, depth, and scale will keep readers engaged, while the text enriches the reading experience with relatable and humorous commentary. Readers will not only learn their colors but also grow familiar with fine art in this relevant and relatable first title in this series of concept books featuring the most innovative and influential artists. Includes a read-aloud "about the artist" at the end.
