A charming concept book in verse about colours the child sees around him - green, blue, orange, red, brown, black and white.

Each page is dedicated to a colour and has a very pleasing effect.

       Blue? It's the sky above

        The water of the sea

        Feathers on the peacock

       And the bird that's on the tree.

Verses are rather forced in parts, but the  overall presentation is good.

The book is a veritable treat with its lush detailed illustrations.

The association of everyday items with a colour would make a child want to go back to the book, over and over again.
