Concepts like colors and simple words have never been easier and more fun than when presented by Richard Scarry. Here are two classic board books, THE COLOR BOOK and EARLY WORDS, available for the first time together in one volume.

Frannie the bunny shows you all the important words to identify what's in your room, your bathroom, your closet, the kitchen, and the playground. Then Mr. Paint Pig introduces eight colors that brighten the world.

Originally published in 1976, these two bestselling board books sold a combined 500,000 copies. Now, bound together for the first time, this is the must-have title that's just the right level for young minds and just the right size for small hands hands.
