Book Review: The Sound of Colors
Visually this is one of the most captivating and imaginative books I have ever read. Every time I re-read it I am absorbed into Liao's stunning world. It is the story of a blind girl who goes below the city to ride the subway. It is a story of imagination and of the senses. Our toddlers are too young to understand the story right now, but my daughter and I sometimes sit and page through the illustrations. She too is captivated by the rich and detailed paintings. In a few years we will explore the deeper meaning, but for now I share it with you, for it is too amazing too just sit on my shelf any longer. It is colorful, hopeful, and simply beautiful.
