I loved reading beautifully illustrated, well-written picture books to my children. Now, I love reading to my grandchildren. Counting books and color books are my favorite.

Each book in the I See Colors series is filled with cheerfully bright and beautiful photographs and simple text to introduce children to each color. Children will discover black shoes, blue doors, yellow cars, red cars, purple grapes, white churches, and green frogs in a delightful exploration of colors in the world all around us. 

These books are interactive. Mom reads, “I see a green bird. Birds say “Tweet, tweet.” Can you say, “Tweet, tweet”? Or she says, “Can you find all the yellow shopping bags?” and her little one points to the yellow shopping bags.

The I See Colors series introduces children to one color at a time with I See RedI See BlueI See YellowI See PurpleI See Orange, I See GreenI See PinkI See BrownI See Blackand I See White

Each book opens with this verse: “Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of Lights” (James 1:17 NASB). This verse reminds us that everything good, including every color is a gift from the Lord!

If you’re like me, you are delighted by the multitude of colors everywhere!

When my oldest grandson was learning his colors, his parents and grandparents read him lots of picture books about colors! However, I noticed that the books mentioned so many colors at once that it got a little confusing.

What if there was a book that focused on just one color. Of course, then you would need several different picture books! One for each color!

And thus, I wrote these books for my precious grandchildren and they love them! Throughout the book with simple prose that is fun to listen to, children are introduced to a wise variety of objects of the same color. At the end of each book, they get to pick out objects that are the color they have been reading about!

I See Red

From a red train that goes chuga-chuga-chuga-choo-choo to a red fire hydrant, I See Red is filled with red! Discover a red church, 2 red apples, a red jeep, red bikes, red strawberries, red chairs, a red gumball machine, a red bird, red pencils, a red racing car, a red cell phone, a red rose, a red jacket, and 5 red shirts!
