Black Book of Colors (The) - Cover
Black Book of Colors (The)
Menena Cottin, Groundwood Books 2006
It's very hard for a sighted person to imagine what it is like to be blind. This groundbreaking book tries to convey the experience of a person who can only see through his or her sense of touch, taste, smell or hearing. The book is printed entirely in black, with raised, black line drawings on black paper along with braille translations of the text. A very creative and innovative book. Lovely!

Ages: Play Years (2-4), Transition (4-5)
Languages: Languages other than English or Spanish
Book Types: Story Book
