It's another busy day with Stanley and friends as they mix colors, paint, and create An ideal entr e to colors and the practice of painting.

"Written at the right pace and level for little readers... a sweet and colorful story." --Kirkus Reviews

In Stanley's Paint Box, William Bee introduces colors and basic painting concepts within a fun, simple story about friendship and creative play.

Stanley brings his paint box to help friends Little Woo, Sophie, and Benjamin with a special project. There's a stack of boxes of different sizes along with red paint and blue paint and yellow paint and white paint. But what happens when Sophie wants orange and Benjamin requests green? The friends work together to mix colors and use their rollers, sponges, brushes, and even their paws to create stripes, zigzags, and other engaging patterns on the boxes . . . and, of course, on themselves. What will the finished product be?

The sturdy Stanley board book series, focused on early childhood education concepts, will appeal to toddlers, preschoolers, and fans of Lucy Cousins' Maisy. It's a great stepping-stone to William Bee's beloved series of padded picture books featuring Stanley and his rodent friends as they explore jobs and careers, vehicles, daily routines, and what it means to be part of a community.
