What colourful choices! I love them. I'd forgotten all about Cat's Colours- one of my favourites to read to kids when I taught. Thanks so much!

These look so bright and fun. I am going to look for some of these at the library next time we go. We work work work on our colors. I think he may know them , he just does not yet say the words.

Lots of children know them, I don't know why they don't say them. My daughter was the same way until she was five! She said everything was orange. So when I registered her for kindergarten, I came home, told her i met with her teacher, and the teacher said she had to know her colors or she couldn't go to school!
Oh I hated to lie like that! But, it worked, she ran around, pointed to everything saying its color! Uh huh, just as I expected! ;) But, I didn't tell her that. :)

Love the selection!
I don't think I've actually heard of any of them, that's pretty rare for me!
Hope you have a good week
