The Black Book of Colors by Menena Cottin


The Black Book of Colors’ text stole my attention as soon as I opened the book. This is not because the text is so well written, but that it is in Braille as well as regular text. The book also has raised black drawings of things such as rain, strawberries and feathers. This book is pure black and is designed so children can begin to understand how a blind person feels without color and relying only on words to describe a picture and touching. This is a must check out for all ages!
