Author(s): Reeder Stephanie Own
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 Australia's 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 and respond to the colours. 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.
