Hello, friends! Our book today is Wake Up, Color Pup by Taia Morley, a sweet and simple adventure through color with a playful pup.
A little white dog wakes up with the sun, following a spritely yellow bird out into the world. Each landscape he plays across showcases a different color: first yellow, then orange, then red, all the way through the rainbow. His rolling, splashing, and frolicking leaves traces of each hue on his white fur, until a sudden storm of black and gray comes along and washes it all off. Once the rain has passed, however, the pup finds that there is still plenty of color left to enjoy, and to share.
Adorable. The simple rhyming text focuses on the actions of the charming pup and the colors being explored, making this a bright and easy read for younger bookworms. The rhymes can occasionally be a little clunky, especially when read aloud, but the minimalist structure of the text lessons the impact of any stumbles. The art is lovely, using the colors and characters to create riotously bright and endearingly sweet visuals that are uncomplicated yet exciting and fun. The length is perfect for any age, and JJ loved it. A wonderful story to introduce little ones to color, and it’s Baby Bookworm approved!
