My First Colors is a unique series that introduces children to the wonderful colors and shades in the world around them. Gorgeous watercolor collages and lyrical, light poems teach children about the role colors play in our everyday lives.
Each book in the My First Colors series focuses on one of the primary colors, with a poetic text evoking the special qualities of its many shades. Every spread is a marvelous collage of torn paper aglow with flowing watercolors. The texture of the original illustrations comes through in these sparkling reproductions, making children want to touch the pages and seek colorful objects all around them.
