The Colour of Happy

By Laura Baker
Illustrated by Angie Rozelaar

  • Hardback
  • £12.99

A beautiful exploration of feelings shown through colour as one little boy navigates a range of emotions - from happiness and excitement to hope and love, all on his way to present a gift to his mum.

Blue is for the calm I feel wandering in the spring.
Yellow is for happy when I spot a special thing.

This book is the perfect introduction to both emotions and colours.
