     Bear sees blue, red, yellow, green and brown. Every other page is white - it's when bear meets friends along the way and is about to see a color. Between those white, toned-down pages are pages that are literally bursting with color. Bear Sees Colors is beautifully illustrated and filled with color-coordinated elements (blue sky, water, fish and blueberries and red ladybugs, watering can, strawberries, etc). And in addition to the gorgeous, detailed illustrations, we have Wilson's clever and fun rhymes, that will invite your child to play along and guess what color bear will see next!
