The Colors Inside of Me
A little black and white panda discovers just how colourful he really is, by author Amy Lee Westervelt
Panda loves art. He loves to draw and paint and create. One day, his teacher gives him an assignment to draw a picture of himself, using all the colours inside of him. Panda is confused, “All I am is black and white.” he sobbed. His teacher explains that all of the colours that exist are in both black and white, and therefore all the colours that exist are inside of him. He is black and white on the outside, but on the inside, he is calm like the blue ocean, passionate like a red rose, and happy like the yellow sun. With a little help from his teacher and friends, the Panda soon comes to realise just how amazing and colourful he really is.
The Colors Inside of Me is a sweet and heart-warming picture book by Amy Lee Westervelt about a young panda bear and his journey towards self-acceptance. Children will love the fun, vibrant, detailed illustrations by Mandy Moore, and the cute panda bear and other animal characters. By focusing on our hidden strengths and inner beauty, rather than our physical appearance, this book will help to develop confidence and self-esteem in young children.
