The Black Book of Colors

24477e9bddd73a0209f98b60d802ea9e-w204@1xEvery page of The Black Book of Colors by Menena Cottin, illustrated by Rosana Faria and translated by Elisa Amado, is black with a short line of white print. Each line is also in Braille, and the pictures are raised like Braille in order for the reader to touch and imagine, using all of the senses but sight to envision a colour.

Use this book to start a conversation on the senses and visual impairment.
