There’s no denying it – when I see the colour yellow, I feel happy.
Colours are strongly associated with emotions and the recently published The Rainbow Book by Kate Ohrt explores this relationship in language suitable for pre-schoolers.
Using colours on a black background and intricate die-cut pages that overlap to create a stunning kaleidoscope effect, Ohrt looks at the emotions traditionally linked to particular colours – “When I feel red, I am fiery and bold. When I feel orange, I am energetic and strong.”
At the end of the book, all the colours lead to a bright ‘rainbow of feelings’. This is a simple but lovely book for preschoolers – expect a lot of page turning (forwards and backwards) as kids explore the layering of the colours.
The Rainbow Book is $9.76 and is available from Book Depository who ship free to Australia.
