A World Without Color by John Amos

img_9021Weekly Trip to the Library

This week when you go to the library with the children you care for I recommend borrowing an uplifting book A World Without Color written by the actor John Amos. For those of my generation and older, the author is a legendary actor well known for his roles on the television series Good Times, the television mini series Roots, and the movie Coming To America, among others.

His writing skills are as good as his acting skills, as he writes a beautiful book that introduces the concept of empathy to young children.img_9019-1

In A World Without Color, Bleakersville is a terribly mundane place where everything is gray. The buildings are gray. The sky is gray, and even the trees and animals are gray. But as a boy moves through the town he becomes introduced to color. The book teaches readers how to make a difference in their own lives and the lives of others, just by changing their perspective.

The illustrations by Leonard Kenyon are perfect for the story as they follow the plot by slowly introducing color into the pages of the book.

I highly recommend this book and look forward to more children’s books by the author and illustrator in the future.
