The Colour of Happy
By Laura Baker
Illustrated by Angie Rozelaar
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.
