Babar's Book of Colour by Laurent de Brunhoff


Babar's Book of Colour by Laurent de Brunhoff

Babar continues to be one of the best-loved children's book characters ever created, selling millions of copies worldwide. Beginning in Spring 2012, Abrams will start reissuing Laurent de Brunhoffs classic Babar stories in handsome 3 piece case editions. Parents, grandparents and teachers alike can now introduce Babar and his kingdom to a whole new generation! Babar's book of colour is a fresh and fun introduction to exploring the world of colour. A visit to Barar's art studio turns into a adventure in clours and their combinations for Pom, Flora, Alexander and Isabelle. Not only do they each adopt a favorite colour, but they discover the joys of mixing two colours together to make a third. Before they know it, they're painting ten camels, pink flamingoes, blue whales and, of course, gray elephants! Babar's Book of Colour will encourage a new generation of young children to find colour in their own lives.

You give me age appropriate ideas of books I can read and buy for the children and find out what other children their age think of them too.
