The Black Book of Colours by Menena Cottin

The Black Book of Colours by Menena Cottin reinforces the themes of colour, open-minded, perspective and tolerance.
Translated from Spanish. “Thomas likes all the colours because he can hear them and smell them and touch them and taste them.” Black pages with black embossed drawings help the readers to understand how someone who is blind uses Braille and senses the world around them. Each page describes how Thomas experiences different colours.
