Book Review: Star Trek My First Book of Colors by Robb Pearlman


Star Trek My First Book of Colors introduces little Trekkies to colors in a charming way.

Star Trek My First Book of Colors, written by Robb Pearlman and illustrated by Jason Kayser, is a 24-page board book intended for young readers just learning their colors. Once again, Kayser has done a fabulous job with illustrations, especially Deep Space Nine and the Enterprise. For these alone, Star Trek collectors will also want this book.

Pearlman is a #1 New York Times Bestselling Author of more than sixty books for grown-ups and kids, according to his website, and he’s done a wonderful job with incorporating various scenes from Star Trek into the book while introducing the colors in a repetitive fashion designed to help children remember. There are a few words that you wouldn’t ordinarily find in children’s literature like “iridescent” and “quantum singularity,” but the kids might as well learn new words right along with their colors.

Star Trek My First Book of Colors offers Trekkies a chance to teach their children using the tools they love.

Fans of Star Trek will adore this book as, while teaching their children about colors, they can also show them some of the Trek universe. There’s even a little Guinan, a Gorn (like the one from Star Trek: The Original Series not the scary ones from Star Trek: Strange New Worlds), and a Mugato. And the book ends with a play on the words behind IDIC. Overall, a perfect book for learning and for collecting!
