Colorful Tales by Don Hansen - Book Tour & Review + Giveaway


Grade Level: 2 - 3 
Age Level: 4 - 8

Date Published: March 20, 2018

Publisher: WestBow Press

In Colorful Tales, lessons of love, acceptance, wonder, humility, joy, and courage are tenderly revealed through the adventures of life-loving Buz the Bear. No ordinary bear cub, Buz surprises and delights as he finds meaning in living everyday bear life. Through his stories, young readers find their own unique experiences given shape and purpose while celebrating their love of fun and adventure, the natural world, and the realness of the spirit.

My Review
Colorful Tales is a sweet, adorable children's book about a little bear named Buz. Buz likes to sit in a field of flowers and watch the clouds, play with the butterflies, and just contemplate life. In each little snippet of Buz's life (kind of like memories, I suppose), we discover that Buz learns a very important lesson. Each story is then succeeded by a Bible verse that correlates with the lesson learned. While I'm not necessarily a religious person, I thought the quotes were a nice touch. 
The book is a little repetitive, but for children, that's probably a good thing (each story starts pretty much the same way). Other than the repetition, though, I found Colorful Tales to be a cute little read.
I would recommend this book to parents who want their kids to have something wholesome and joyful to read, and to young readers who like cute stories about adorable little animals. 
4 stars!
