Colour is a major theme of this lovely picture book – the colour of people, of places, of lives, of seasons – and most of all, the colour of love. Love is such a difficult concept for very young children, but the illustrations here show us how people interact with each other no matter who or where they are in the world. The rainbow cut-out on the cover and on each page as the book progresses, becomes smaller and smaller but always shows us something about the place where we are. Whether in the West, or the East, or the Middle East, north in snow or south in heat, whether in a single-parent family, two girls with two dads, a traditional mixed race family, or with a grandparent, we know we are loved, and the colour around us helps to prove that love. This is a truly colourful book in every way which will give children the sense of wonder and magic that is so important in learning that people are people and are to be loved no matter what they look like or the place they live. The rhyming text will appeal too, and this story will be read over and over and enjoyed for its detail and vibrancy.
