Jennifer Higgie, There’s Not One, Scribble Books/Scribe, 29 August 2016, 28pp., $24.99 (hbk), ISBN 9781925321708
There is something special about colour and its ability to captivate and delight. Jennifer Higgie treats us to a riotous palette in this glorious book that celebrates the vastness and diversity of our world in simple but stunning style. We are invited to consider that there are billions, even zillions, of all sorts of things in the world, from baked beans to rain drops, and how they are all part of a bigger picture. It is a seemingly simple concept, but there is so much here to inspire big thoughts in little tots and conversations about our unique place in this wondrous world.
The quirky typography and bold, childlike illustrations, set against blocks of different colour, will further ignite imaginations.
This is perfect for toddlers and preschoolers who love to ask the big questions.
