From Malty's blue hue to the purple monkeys she meets on the road to Biscuit Brook, color is everywhere — and there's a reason it's typically one of the first things taught in a second language! 🎨
Knowing color names is considered a cognitive milestone of a child's development, because it's a building block of descriptive language skills. (Think about how often you use colors to communicate a key message: "Can you grab that red book?" "I'll take green tea, please.")
Knowing this vocabulary will vastly expand what your kiddos are able to describe in another language.
