Synopsis

This artful first colors book introduces children to 9 basic colors and 20 shades of each. Readers will immerse themselves in the concept that one color name actually refers to a variety of dark, light, and in-between tones. Young children will begin by simply naming the colors of the monochromatic images and will soon grow to select their favorite and least-favorite shades. Pantone: Colors is a visually pleasing way to expand the colors conversation and develop a child's sense of visual discrimination.

I was left with more questions than answers by glimpses into the art world's changing relationship with colour, about how Edward Hopper used "rich, promising colours to depict silence and isolation" or why the Cubists rejected the decorative colours of the Fauves.
