What You Need to Know:
Little Pink Book uses “touch and feel” and vivid images to explain the color pink.
• The board book format is convenient for the youngest readers – it will help them learn to hold a book and won’t
  easily be damaged.
• Readers also have the opportunity to use their sense of smell.
• Photographs are used to deliver realistic images.
Sweet Book Summary:
Have you ever looked at the moon and felt like you wanted to reach out and touch it? That’s just the feeling you get when you turn the pages of this engaging board book. The vibrant photographs are so inviting, they will encourage the littlest hands to reach out to feel the soft piglets or bumpy seashells. Readers can even smell the juicy watermelon slices. What do all of these fun items have in common? They’re all different shades of Pink! And how cute is that miniature pink piglet, perched on top of the “k” on the cover?

Colors can be hard to explain. They don’t smell, have texture or make noise, and not everyone sees them the same way. We simply have to make the association between the color and the objects that define it. This straightforward board book will help make that first connection. By combining the visual importance of color with the smell and feel of the objects highlighted in the book, Khatami encourages future readers to use a multisensory approach to life.
