A little girls tries to get some attention from her parents and brother, but no one seems to have any time for her.

"Why does nobody talk to me?"

"Why does nobody play with me?"

"With whom should I play?" she wonders.

To her rescue comes a set of colourful, colour pencils. Green, blue, yellow, orange and red. Together they create lovely pictures of her Mama, her Daddy and her brother. When she shows it to her family, they are delighted and best of all, her brother, now wants them to make drawings together!

Lots of details and colours swirling across the pages will appeal to a child.

An interesting way to introduce children to various colours!
