Colour My Days by Ross Collins (Children's, Picture book, 9/10E)

March 2018, Barrington Stoke, 32 pages, Paperback, Review copy

Book summary from Barrington Stoke
Emmy and Jeff live in a black and white world. But suddenly, the week has started with a splash of yellow and each new day brings a new colour into Emmy and Jeff’s lives. Join them as they explore all the colours in the rainbow!

Nayu's thoughts 
This book is literally bursting with colour, filling Emmy and Jeff's life with joy and new experiences. I love how there are so many things crammed into a page filled with 1 colour. It was interesting how Jeff seemed happier with pink than Emmy, how many creatures and items are predominantly one colour, how certain colours are associated with specific things yet in reality can be other colours. It is always good to have new experiences in life, although Emmy and Jeff learn everything needs to be in moderation-at one point there are so many colours it becomes overwhelming for them. 

This is a brilliant book for readers learnig about their world, as I'm sure it will encourage naming objects for certain colours, and finding new hobbies simply from seeing Emmy and Jeff trying new activities.While not quite 100% my preferred illustration style and colours I did enjoy this book and highly recommend it as a fun read which subtly teaches readers about the world we live in.
