What colour is an apple? A dog? Grass? Young readers will be amazed by the range of possibilities!
What colour is a banana? It can be at least 25 different shades, according to this artful swatch book of versatile subjects. An inversion of the way we typically look at colour, this book challenges readers' predispositions towards using a particular crayon for a particular object. 11 items are each presented alongside a grid of colour ranges: the "apple" page features yellows, greens, and reds; the "egg" page a range of greens to greys; even "grass" is surprising, with suggestions of pink. The read-along text is playful and philosophical, poetic and factual… all towards expanding readers' assumptions. Inspired by the Whitney Museum's approach to looking at art, these books provide a new way to look at the world.
