Colour My World

Front Cover
National Library of Australia, 2008 - Colors - 32 pages
"In an unusual approach to exploring colours in the life of a child, Stephanie Owen Reeder has selected charming black-and-white photographs of children from the National Library of Australias Pictures Collection and combined them with brightly coloured pages and an engaging interactive text. In Colour My World!, children are encouraged to interact with the boys and girls who gaze at them from the pages, join in the rhythmical text, respond to the colours which bleed from the pages into the black-and-white photographs, and talk about what they like to do in their own lives, whether it is swimming, eating, reading or playing. A helpful note for parents provides ideas for using the book with children and further information on the twelve colours covered. This is a fun way for young children to increase their visual literacy skills while finding out more about colours, the world and themselves."--Provided by publisher.
