Everyday when Betty wakes up, she is a different colour.
All the little chickens wait to see, just what colour she will be!
This book's simplicity and rhythm weave with the detail, sweetness and fun of each illustration. It combines simple layers of information for various stages of learning. It's a demonstrated literacy tool, suitable for ages 0–5, but most of all, it's fun!
What colours am I? has had a strong response from children and parents. We are very appreciative of your reviews and your 'Just a note to say thanks...' messages! The reviews also demonstrate a boost in a child’s confidence to learn and to speak. One librarian said:
"An English teaching friend of mine was asked to teach a South American child English. She wasn’t prepared with any children’s books and asked if I could provide her with some. I gave her a pile, and this is the one book the child refused to put down as he loved it so much. Of course, he also learnt his basic colours!”
The back section provides caregivers with questions and discussion points, so the child can use their imagination and expand upon the basic story.
