Books Inc. Alameda welcome local illustrator Constance Moore to celebrate her illustrated picture book Black: The Many Wonders of My World, with a story time and art activity!

A celebration of the color black, from the team who created Brown: The Many Shades of Love

Black is a wonderful color. Black is special. It is true. It's the sky when the morning is new. In this loving and lovely ode to the color black, a girl describes the many wonders of her world--from the black of starry nights to her own black eyes, clear and bright.


"An eye-opening tribute to an often underrated color."-- Kirkus Reviews

"The text discusses positive examples of the color black, deliberately diminishing its stereotypical associations with danger, negativity, and sadness. Childlike collage illustrations layer images on abstract or earth-toned backgrounds, successfully conveying black's ubiquitous presence in the world, along with its beauty." -- Booklist


Constance Moore is an artist and educator based in Oakland, California. She loves teaching elementary school art and shares her students' love of color.
