Color Farm is a wordless picture book that captures all of the animals on a farm, but depicted in an unusual way. She begins the book with a poem about the animals on a farm. As you turn the page, you see a fam animal that is made out of a mathematical shape. The name of the animal is written in the corner. On the opposing side of the page, Elhert has used a solid color with the cutout shape, and names the shape in the lower corner. This continues throughout the book.Elhert's use of cut-outs makes this a book like none other. The bright colors are sure to keep a child's attention.I think this would be a great book to use when teaching shapes and colors.

Told in a series of cut outs, where each page lifts to reveal a different picture. My children enjoyed this when they were young, but I may pass it on to my sister now.
