Starred Review! This gorgeous illustrated book sings to every adult’s inner child. It pairs dreamlike art with trilling reminiscences of childhood joys and growing pains, painted in the vibrant colors of the wide, wild world. A girl settles on a stack of books, her world lit up by what they contain; another plays mermaid on the ocean floor. But then the children grow and change; some forget to feel delight. This inquisitive, magical book is perfect for anyone whose sense of wonder may have gone into hibernation.
“All the Colors of Life” is a wonderful and unpretentious book, as a perfect gift to absolutely anyone as a box of chocolates.
