Green Clover, Green Leaves (Teach Kids Colors -- the learning-colors book series for toddlers and children ages 1-5) (Paperback)
Did you know many children struggle to learn colors the traditional way: taught side by side, all in one book? With that in mind, the Teach Kids Colors book series takes a novel, science-backed approach to color learning -- one color, one fun book at a time. Inside the green book, your child will meet Clover, a curious elf who searches the world over for green items, from limes to a tree frog to a lily pad, and learns that the grass isn't always greener on the other side. "Green Clover, Green Leaves" teaches the color green utilizing color-consistent items like leaves, limes, broccoli, peas and more to help kids ages 1 to 5 apply objects to learning colors when they are out in the world with their family -- hiking, grocery shopping, looking in the refrigerator or riding in the car. Perfect for introducing children to colors, "Green Clover, Green Leaves" is the first book, the green book, in the Teach Kids Colors series. Written in easy-to-remember limericks, each book in the series uses lively characters and vivid illustrations to deliver an uplifting message with a subtle lesson on color, the scientific way -- one color, one fun book at a time. Children love the stories so much they don't even realize they're learning.
Jaime Grimes is the creator and author of the Teach Kids Colors book series. Jaime grew up on a peanut farm in Georgia with her slightly older brother, Chris Peck, who illustrates all of her books. Their childhoods were filled with exploring creeks, playing under the spray of irrigation systems and dancing to "The Monster Mash" in their living room. All of those wide open spaces gave them plenty of room to imagine and create, so Jaime developed a flair for writing and Chris fostered a talent for drawing and painting. Jaime is a professional writer and award-winning former journalist who began writing for her hometown newspaper when she was 16 years old. While pursuing a Bachelor's degree in English and journalism, Jaime wrote for both her college and city newspapers and interviewed Clark Howard and Tom Green. After graduating from college, Jaime wrote a popular food column for a Georgia newspaper featuring home cooks, interviewed Luke Bryan, Paula Deen and Nathalie Dupree and won a Georgia Associated Press award in Business Writing. Since then, she's written and/or started blogs for the corporate headquarters of a financial planning company, online auto sales marketplace, national network of real estate websites and group of staffing companies. Jaime lives in the Atlanta area with her husband, a professional marketing writer who edits her books, and energetic young son, who manages to sit still just long enough to hear her read them.
