An interesting look at what it's like to be blind, from the perspective of a young boy who describes how colours feel, taste, smell, and sound. ( )

This book tells the story of colors through the eye of someone who is blind. It includes raised pictures as the story is written in braille. This book was the first that I have seen in braille. This book was special to me because of it being written in braille and also being a picture book for children. This book should be a part of the classroom library. ( )

The Black Book of Color by Menena Cotton is a really cute and fun book. The book has regular words at the bottom and Brail at the top. It uses descriptive words for each color. I really enjoyed this book. ( )

What a great way to describe colors. This is a great teaching tool for children who can see and who are blind. ( )
