What are the names of the primary colours?
And how do we mix some of the others?
Where does the colour fit
And which is its opposite?
Wacky friends help you count
And teach what colour's all about!
It's colour fun time
In number and rhyme.
Little characters - from one mouse to twelve smiling crocs - take you around the colour wheel. Bears and bugs further explain the colours brown and black and an additional section explains shades, tints, tones, hue and the names for colours.
Small children will enjoy listening to the colour rhymes, early readers will enjoy reading them and teachers and parents can refer to the colour theory rhymes to explain the theory. Each rhyme is also repeated in a plain prose sentence.
The CMY system is a good colour system to teach to young children, as it is used extensively in our modern world of commercial printing, paint mixes and inks for desktop printers. Indie authors too, have had to come to grips with it.
The quality of colour printing we enjoy today, came about with the introduction of the CMYK system. Black was added to give depth to colour images. (It is indicated by the letter K as can be seen in print cartridges).
Colour theory is a fascinating part of both the art and science worlds. Famous artists, philosophers and scientists ranging from Goethe to Mansell, and Da Vinci to Newton have all grappled with the qualities of colour and light.
There are also two colour Count and Discover Kindle versions (expanded for teachers and abridged for children) and a printed colouring book. The latter makes a perfect side-by-side pair with either the print or digital main book.
There are additional gift products and teaching materials like posters, that feature the little characters in the rhymes. All make great gifts and learning aids.
