Of Color, Beauty, the Alphabet, and Fun: “A is for Azure”

How do you describe a book about color?

If I say, “It’s appealing and interesting,” that doesn’t quite tell you anything. It’s like saying a poetry collection is “luminous” or “breathtaking.”

How do you describe a book that is about color and the alphabet and may also help with literacy programs, or simply help teaching children to read?

I know how I would describe that book.

Something wonderful.
