Laila wishes to paint the scene from her window on her canvas. However, there is no color anywhere in her house. She goes for a walk and touches everything with her magic paintbrush, which takes up the colors from the outside world. She happily returns home, makes her house and clothes colorful and then turns to her easel. But, when she looks outside, there is no color! Shocked and sad that she's caused everything to be grey and gloomy, Laila, finds a way to bring the colors back! Laila's Magic Brush is all about color, 50 pages with minimal text and 23 brilliantly colored illustrations. Plus an easy to understand description of primary and secondary colors for preschoolers. It makes a delightful read for parents and their little ones to enjoy for share time or bedtime. There is an excerpt of the story, Tic Tac and the Raven, also by Luthie West, attached at the end.
