Orange Is an Apricot, Green Is a Tree Frog inspires young learners' curiosity in nature and language through the simple joy of connecting words and pictures through colors. Yellow looks like a daffodil and a dahlia, a lemon and a chick. Blue looks like a dragonfly and an iris, a blue tang and a bluebird. Pascale Estellon's wonderfully detailed gouache illustrations bring the many shades of red, orange, yellow, blue, green, black, and white to life and serve as a beginner's field guide to new words and new worlds. Children will expand their vocabulary and delight in seeing words they already know while learning the names of new animals, plants, and fruits and vegetables through their hues.
