For kindy graduates with a diploma in finger-painting, this book is the definitive guide for colour mixing. Actually it’s an eccentric picture book which plays whimsically with a child’s typical activity and presents it in a joyfully interactive way; plenty of white background to accentuate the coloured shapes, and a breezily conversational text instructing child readers what to do to move to the next page - learning about colour mixing along the way. Sure to delight the under 5s.
