Praise for Jason Fulford and Tamara Shopsin:
“These Colors Are Bananas widens the idea of the natural color of natural things. . . . Find Colors. . . encourages children to become color hunters, prowling and pouncing and, we can hope, developing an appreciation for the hues they discover.” —The Wall Street Journal
“ ★ Wife-and-husband team Shopsin and Fulford have done the impossible and reimagined the color concept book.”
— Kirkus Reviews, STARRED review
“What is the deal with power couple Tamara Shopsin and Jason Fulford? These guys come out of nowhere and then produce two of the most original and interesting board books of 2018 out of nothing?. . .They’re brilliant. How has no one thought of this before?”
—Elizabeth Bird, Fuse Eight Blog/SLJ.com
