I was looking for a book to help my son develop awareness of colour, and hit straight on this one. The pictures are generally good for CVI-kids, and the fact that it features animals perfect for my son.
The only images that won't be clear are when the white mice are against white paper, but since the whole point of those illustrations is to show how well the mice are camouflaged from the cat, then I guess that's ok!
As ever, there are lots of versions of this book being read on YouTube, but unlike many other books I've seen where the YouTuber has opted to film themselves leafing through the book against the backdrop of a crazy patterned carpet, this one features a few versions where the videoing has been very professionally done, with only the book featured.
We've also compiled "CVI-friendly" book lists on the following vendors websites where you can browse many of the books reviewed on these pages:
