Capturing a fantastical warmth, this thrilling adventure invites early-aged readers on a journey from the blossoms of Japan, to the sun-flower fields of Summer, the crunching leaves in the forests of Autumn, and everywhere inbetween. The book urges us all to think about colour, in the same way we experience it. Whether it be the blues of the sea, the yellows of the sun, or the grey of dreary winter days, Lester’s use of rhyming phrases and vivid illustrations make for a wonderful book to read aloud.
A curious adventure not to be missed, Colours emerges as a children’s book which is equally informative, teaching primary and tertiary colours,as it is enchanting. It is a constant reminder to the budding artists inside of us all, to never stop making!
