Review: Wobble Bear Says Yellow by Ian Whybrow and Caroline Jayne Church

Wobble Bear is a delightful little bear who is just starting to learn about colours. He insists through the book on calling everything ‘yellow’, whether it is or not, much to his mummy’s frustration and my daughter’s delight!

This is a charming board book all about colours. Wobble’s mummy tells him the different colours of things around the house as she gets him ready for bed, repeating the colour names in an attempt to get Wobble to copy her. Wobble, however, has a different idea and he insists throughout on saying everything is ‘yellow’! He does this right from the start of the book, with a cheeky little smile on his face and a look directly at the reader, so children instantly realise that Wobble is being funny. Just three pages in to reading this aloud at our play group’s story time saw almost all the children shouting out ‘yellow’ along with Wobble!
