Title: The Black Book of Colors
Author: Cottin, Menena and Faria, Rosana
Reading level: 3.6
Schu’s rating: Four :) out of four
Note: It was originally published in Spanish as El libro negro de los colores.
This is the perfect book to convey the power of touch. It encourages children to use other senses to experience colors, and helps them better understand what it is like to be blind. The left hand side of each double- page spread has white text at the bottom and Braille letters at the top. The right hand side brings to life the pictures through raised black lines. It is unlike any other ”picture book” and must be experienced.
