Colours, Roald Dahl

Teaching colours to your child is made even more fun through the vibrancy of Roald Dahl’s Colours. This book introduce 8 colours as well as animals to your little one.

In my opinion it is imperative to get children to love reading. This can be extremely difficult if you are a parent who does not enjoy a good book. Thankfully James loves to read and he is passing on this love to Hannah. I am so grateful that I can select books to review that are suitable for her. The fact that they are educational is an added bonus. 



Learn your colours with the Enormous Crocodile! This sturdy board book is the perfect introduction to the world of Roald Dahl – and is just right for little hands.

Why we love this book

Hannah, who is one years’ old, likes to take her books out and turn the pages. The thick pages is what makes this child friendly. It is wonderfully illustrated by Quentin Blake and James loved it.

  1. Hi Tandy, Roald Dahl and Quentin Blake are a wonderful combination for children.
    How is the house-building scheme developing?
    Hope you are keeping well. Cheers. x

  2. Could not agree more with you about the absolute need to introduce a small child to the printed word ! I am afraid at the time of my growing up there was no delightful Roald Dahl but the Doomsdale frights of Bros Grimm !! I was hugely lucky to be born as an only child of parents with a huge library in 4-5 languages. Allowed to reach for anything which caught my eye I taught myself to read by age five out of sheer curiosity which has paid off throughout all that life, Both my daughters were brought up in the same thus manner . . .now in the next generation down three of my four grandchildren are reaping the benefit of the printed word in their choice of careers . . . am happy and proud my only granddaughter looks like becoming one of Australia’s foremost TV presenters at a v early age: something she attributes almost wholly to being led to books whilst barely out of nappies . . . . . meanwhile feel like buying that delightful book for myself . . . 🙂 !
