Baby Learns About Colors is a board book published by Salina Bookshelf of Flagstaff, Arizona. This bilingual board book is set in the Southwest among the contemporary Navajo Nation. The colourful illustrations by Beverly Blacksheep feature a young Navajo toddler who is playing outside. There she sees many different colors in her environment. First, Baby sees a red ball which she throws to her older brother. Next she sees a yellow flower which she picks and gives to her mother. The next colour Baby sees is brown. The brown twigs are collected and with them, she builds a tiny hogan. Kneeling on the green grass, Baby then feeds some of the green grass to a rabbit that hops by. When she sees a blue bird, Baby feeds the bird some crumbs. Later that day, it begins to rain and mother takes Baby into their house. After the rain shower, Baby looks outside and sees a wonderful sight. A rainbow appears in the sky. While the publishers designed the board book to appeal to Navajo preschool and kindergarten-age children, this book will appeal to all young children. This charming book contains Navajo and English text with delightfully simple illustrations by Beverly Blacksheep. The Navajo translation is provided by linguist Peter Thomas. This board book about a young child interacting with and exploring her environment is an important addition to the limited Native-content board book collection.
