Can You Paint With All the Colours of the Wind?
on 12 July 2012
The Little Learners Corp have embraced the baby book market faster than Graspy McExited the famous jumper of bandwagons. Their ranges contain books that are foamy, bathy and in more than one case, touch and feely. 'Colours' comes under their pure touch and feel range, that should not be mistaken with their 'That's Not My' homage range. This is a simple book that tells a simple story, so simple in fact that there is no story. Instead we get a series of stereotypical items and the colours they embody e.g. A sunflower in yellow.
The added feature is the texture elements to 'Colours'. Unlike their other touch and feel range, this book actually has an impressive range of different textures to entertain a child. There is nothing new here; a glossy texture here, a ridge concoction there, but they are varied enough that a child would actually want to turn the page and see what's next. This is the basic aim of the book and it achieves it's goal. Perhaps the lack of any narrative will bore a child a little faster, but the educational benefits of feel and learning colours does offset this.
