This introduction to colours integrates the reader’s surroundings into carefully considered die-cut silhouettes, providing children with space to visually experiment.
Readers must gaze around the room through a rooster-shaped hole in search of something red, through a sun-shaped hole for something yellow and through squiggly worms for something pink. Designed for the youngest readers, this sturdy board book features 12 die-cuts made to flip and carry on a colour-seeking mission. Inspired by the Whitney Museum’s approach to looking at art, these books provide a new way to look at the world.
