We loved these two books! My Rainbow Surprise and Sweet Hearts by Amy Sklansky are great gifts ideas for new moms or toddler birthdays! The colors are vibrant and illustrations are just adorable! My Rainbow Surprise has simple text teaching about the colors of the rainbow. Sweet Hearts is all about love and how easy it is to have it in our every day lives! So sweet and fun!

This pair of books is so sweet for infants and young toddlers. The multi tiered, interestingly shaped design of the books will make them stand out on any bookshelf, and are sure to be pleasing to the little hands who explore them. They features bright, cheery illustrations. The colorful illustrations include many different patterns and geometric designs. They pair well with the happy, simple text.
“My Rainbow Surprise” explores each color of the rainbow by describing a few items that fit that color. The rhyming text is appealing, especially to small children. I also appreciated that the items used for each color were not always the typical items you might find in a color book.
“Sweet Hearts” introduces little ones to the idea of love. It depicts ways we can show others that we love them, how love feels, or how love might look. Of course, this book would be sure to be a hit around Valentines Day-but love is special all days of the year and this book would make an enjoyable read for any of the other 364 days as well.
