These Colours Are Bananas
- What colour is a banana? It can be at least 25 different shades, according to this artful swatchbook of versatile subjects.
- An inversion of the way we typically look at colour, this book challenges readers' predispositions towards using a particular crayon for a particular object
- 11 items are each presented alongside a grid of colour ranges: the "apple" page features yellows, greens, and reds; the "egg" page a range of greens to grays; even "grass" is surprising, with suggestions of pink. The read-along text is playful and philosophical, poetic and factual… all towards expanding readers' assumptions. Inspired by the Whitney Museum's approach to looking at art, these books provide a new way to look at the world
- Suitable for ages 2-4 years
