A little book shopping...

So I am in Ottawa for my last weekend.  I leave next week for home.  After the movie today, Joe and I went by Chapter's.  I found some nice bargain books but I came across a book that I had never heard of and it is fabulous!  It's called The Black Book of Colors by Menena Cottin and Rosana Faria.  The whole book has a black background but it talks about different colors on each they sound, or smell, or taste, or feel.  The book is also written in Braille.  The cool thing to me is that after each color is described, the next page is embossed with an image.  For example, the description of red included as tart as a strawberry so the next page had embossed strawberries on it.  I love it and am already thinking of ways I might use it in my class next year!

I can't figure out how to link Barnes and Noble here so you can see a description, but they do have it!
