Full of funny drawings and solid colors, Blue Hat, Green Hat gives parents a fun way to teach small children to identify colors, animals, and articles of clothing. Sandra Boynton has a perfect understanding of toddler humor, and children will laugh at the silly turkey who puts shoes on his head and socks on his hands. This is a fun, educational, useful little book.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
