Basher: Go! Go! Bobo Colors

Simon Basher
Board Book
For infants to age 3
Kingfisher, 2011   ISBN: 978-0753464939

Baby BoBo is in a very bouncy mood, and he wants to explore some colors with you. With his paintbrush in hand, he bounces off his bed…and onto a page, creating a huge splat of red paint on it. From there he bounces (headfirst) onto a page where there are red flowers and red toy fire trucks.

After sending the red flowers and red fire trucks flying, BoBo bounces onto another page, leaving a big yellow splat on the paper. Then he bounces onto the opposite page (landing on his feet this time) that is full of yellow rubber duckies and yellow bananas.

In this clever board book about colors, Simon Basher uses his loveable baby character to explore six different colors. Babies and toddlers will love the bright illustrations, BoBo’s goofy antics, and the glossy surfaces that are interesting to touch.

This is one in a series of board books that the author has created.
