Sit side-by-side with your toddler, oh, and the famed artist Henri Matisse, to learn all about colors in this new title from Phaidon, Blue and Other Colors with Henri Matisse.
This lovely board book, recommended for children ages 1-3, uses the iconic abstract cutouts of Matisse to explore the color blue, gradually acknowledging the wide selection of other colors present in Matisse’s work. “Blue and yellow – and look! Orange dots too!”
Phaidon Children’s Books introduced Blue and Other Colors with Henri Matisse as part of a larger collection titled “First Concepts with Fine Artists”. Of all books geared towards toddlers and early learning, color books are the bestselling. This delightful board book brings a refreshing newness to that wide selection, and is worth adding to your young child’s home library.
Matisse used color, paper and shapes in a technique he called “painting with scissors.” Through the exploration of color and the work of Henri Matisse, what do you think your child will come up with next?
