This smart and playful board book uses the Pantone Matching System to explore variations in familiar colors. On the right, a familiar object (a yellow lion, a pink piggy bank) rendered in Dardik’s friendly, chunky style represents each color, while a chart on the left displays 20 different shades of said color in square panels that correspond to official Pantone colors. Shades of red (embodied by a red wagon) include Ladybug Red (Pantone 200) and Chili Pepper Red (Pantone 7427), while blues range from Teapot Blue (Pantone 284) to Police Officer Blue (Pantone 2727). It’s an evocative exploration of the nuances of color, in a polished, eye-catching package. Up to age 5. Illustrator’s agent: Lilla Rogers Studio. (Mar.)
