Do you know what the colors gamboge, zaffre, and debian look like? Then travel through the alphabet with The Other Colors to learn about the beautiful and unusually named colors found in nature—and to brush up on those ABCs as well. Valerie Gates's charming alliterative style paired with Ann Cutting's stunning photographs of colors found in nature—ecru eggs, scarlet scallops, fandango feathers, limerick lizards, azure abalones, and more—are sure to delight artsy children and adults alike.
Children who have mastered classic colors will broaden their horizons, and parents who are tired of primary colors will find this a book worth rereading. Spectacular photographs of animals, flowers, leaves, shells, and more will inspire children to learn about different colors found in the natural world. And, while children learn about colors, they are also learning the alphabet through subtle and silly sentences. An ideal gift for new parents and for young nature-loving children!
