5.0 out of 5 stars Simple but cute March 28 2013
By Prairie Girl TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Board book|Verified Purchase
This simple story follows a turkey that can't seem to get things right. The pattern follows "blue hat, green hat, red hat, oops" as a series of animals all wear a hat properly, on their head, but the turkey makes a mistake. This continues on in funny ways that are easy for little children to follow. Also leads to conversations about why the turkey is so silly, and why is he wearing pants on his head.

I've had this book for a couple years now and the kids still love it. I can make all kinds of funny faces about how silly that turkey is, and the kids laugh and giggle about it.

By Donald Mitchell #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Board book
Researchers constantly find that reading to children is valuable in a variety of ways, not least of which are instilling a love of reading and improved reading skills. With better parent-child bonding from reading, your child will also be more emotionally secure and able to relate better to others. Intellectual performance will expand as well. Spending time together watching television fails as a substitute.
To help other parents apply this advice, as a parent of four I consulted an expert, our youngest child, and asked her to share with me her favorite books that were read to her as a young child. Blue Hat, Green Hat was one of her picks.
Although ostensibly about colors, this book is subtly about much more. Clothes are put on an elephant, a bear, a moose, and a turkey. As you can imagine, putting clothes on a turkey is a challenge. So the turkey always has the clothes on in some strange way (shirt around tail feathers but not on legs, hat on the feet, pants around head and chest, socks on front feathers, coat on beak, etc.). That is a wonderful way to teach you child the word "oops" and to associate doing something unusual with fun. What a great preparation for mistakes later in life!
All of the pictures are pretty silly, so you will engage your child's sense of the ridiculous. For example, the elephant, bear and moose are standing on their hands when wearing colored pants.
For help with learning the colors, each sequence has the colors in a different order. That makes learning a greater challenge and more interesting.
By sticking with few colors and many situations, the task of learning is made manageable for the child. Since the story is short, it also matches a child's attention span.
Overcome your misconception stall that young children are not ready for humor and book learning!
Enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Love hearing my 2yr old "read" this book! March 23 2010
Format:Board book
I love this book! It's the first one my two year old son "reads" on his own. He had it memorized within minutes. He reads it to everyone that comes in and will listen. IT's so cute to hear him say blue hat, green hat...oops! Silly bird!! He laughs histerically by the end. I highly recommend this book to everyone! It will be one book I keep in my hope chest as it's so special to our family. Thanks Sandra for another great book!

5.0 out of 5 stars A favourite in our house Feb. 19 2007
Format:Board book
My 18 month old son loves this book. It's great fun watching as he develops his sense of humour. Besides the silliness and giggles, the book also provides teachable moments regarding color, clothing, animals, appropriate dress, body parts etc. etc. Boynton certainly understands children.

My family and I love Sandra Boynton books but this book is really great. It helps children learn their colors and it's funny too. I love to hear my son giggle when I read Oops! A must buy for 2-3 year olds.

By A Customer
Format:Board book
I have dozens of children's books, but this one consistently gets the kids howling. Something so silly and fun about a confused little turkey. Hands down the book they grab first when they run to the bookshelf.
