Picture books for everyone

The Black Book of Colors by Menena Cottin

This is a picture book unlike any other you'll experience. The pages are all black with a few lines of white text each. The illustrations are texture based instead of visual. It explores colors with the other senses, describing tastes, smells, and textures that one might associate with each color. Young kids will enjoy simply running their fingers over the braille text and textured illustrations. Use it with older kids to spark a discussion of perspectives and alternate ways of experiencing the world.
