Colour plays an important part in all our lives but is so much more than simply the shade of a physical object. Colour can describe our inner most thoughts and feelings, whilst also taking us on a journey to a specific place or time. This collection of colour poems explores the world around us and the role that colour plays in our lives.

Written by a former teacher, these poems use rhyme, metaphor, similes, personification, onomatopoeia and alliteration, and are a perfect resource for teaching poetry to children in Primary School. With stunning illustrations throughout, these poems are sure to grab the attention and inspire every reader (child and adult alike!) to explore their own world of colour. The book also features some useful ‘writer’s tips’ for those wishing to write their own colour poems.
