Stanley’s back in a board book series about early childhood concepts!

“Irresistible board-book fare.” ―Booklist Online

In Stanley’s Colors, everyone’s favorite hard-working hamster learns about colors while also exploring exciting vehicles. Each spread features an action shot of Stanley with a different mode of transportation in a bright hue—he’s “fixing his red car,” “riding his yellow motorcycle,” and even floating in a pink balloon with his buddy Little Woo.

Toddlers, preschoolers, and fans of Lucy Cousins’ Maisy will love William Bee’s board book series, which is a great stepping-stone to his beloved series of padded picture books featuring Stanley and his rodent friends as they explore jobs and careers, vehicles, daily routines, and what it means to be part of a community.
