Summary (from Back Cover): Play Chester’s game in your house, in your bed. White, blue, orange, brown, black, and red. Seek out each color in places you know. You’ll find what’s familiar wherever you go. Play by yourself, play with a friend, play it over and over and over again.
What Edwin liked and didn’t like about it: Edwin seemed to like the raccoons as well as the small splashes of color on the pages.
Edwin’s bottom line: Edwin would gladly sit there and read A Color Game for Chester Raccoon at bedtime, but overall he did not seem to go back to this book. Edwin says “No”.
What it’s about: It is a discovering color book.
What I liked and disliked about it: I quite liked the illustrations. There is a forest theme with raccoons in green and brown colors. When a brightly colored object is depicted, the image really pops at you! The writing is whimsical and sweet, but it did not speak to my children’s imagination. For that, I had to give this book low marks.
My bottom line: I think this book would speak to girls more than boys. 18 mo+ is a good time to start with this book. It was a nice book to read at bedtime.
