Unwrapping some fun illustrations for you

Unveiling the Story

This board book is very artsy.  It's simple, colourful, whimsical and a wonderful way to introduce kids to the colour spectrum.  As each splash of colour is featured it is discovered that it is really a body part of a little person.  Each colour add-on morphs into a beautiful little boy and once he's complete the author doesn't stop there.  Not wishing for the little guy to be in the universe all alone she continues making friends for him to play with and enjoy.  

This delightful book not only teaches the names and beauty of different colours it highlights the uniqueness and diversity of others.  It's a celebration of acceptance and friendship. The illustrations are vibrant, funky and fun.  I highly recommend this book.
