A stunning and unforgettable black book ... about colour.

Our eyes tell us about colour. But what if you are blind? Can you still know colours? Using simple language and beautiful textured art, this book shows you how to 'see' without your eyes. From out of the blackness, a beautiful rainbow of colours emerges!

  • Braille letters accompany the illustrations on every page and a full Braille alphabet offers sighted readers help in deciphering the text with their fingers, and sharing an experience usually known by blind readers alone.

As a teacher I need books that stimulate and encourage children to think. This book does that and covers many areas like colours, being blind, using our senses, foods, etc. it's a great conversation promoter.
