Young children can discover famous paintings by Rembrandt, Rousseau, Kandinsky, Matisse, Picasso and lots more, with try-it-yourself activities and stickers to create their own art gallery.
A fantastic journey through an amazing world of over 130 colours, including the primary and secondary colours and descriptive colour words, such as canary yellow, russet and mint green. Includes a colour wheel to turn to see which colours go well together and a see-through acetate page to flip to see what happens when you mix colours. Pages dedicated to each colour are filled with pictures of coloured things - for instance red fire engines, poppies and robins, and colours such as lobster red, burgundy and maroon, plus anecdotes about the meanings of colours, such as red for warnings. A delightful book to share and talk about with a young child, and to use as inspiration for writing and painting as they grow older.
This book will be the start of many conversations with young children. School Library Association Information Book Award 2016 Judge's comment
