Colour Me



We are all different. But together we colour our world amazing.

Colour Me is a charming celebration of difference. Using the rainbow as a metaphor, Aboriginal author Ezekiel Kwaymullina shapes his gentle and harmonious prose around the individual colours, using alliteration to create a rhythmic text that calls to be read aloud.

Moira Court’s bold screen print illustrations are a beautiful complement to the prose and are imbued with a tenderness that will attract children.

At the book's conclusion the individual colours are brought together to demonstrate this key message: ‘But together we colour our world amazing.’ Tender and joyful, this picture book will teach children to appreciate the beauty of our vibrant diversity.
