Colouroos is a modern concept picture book aimed at the 4-8-year-olds.
When three different coloured groups of kangaroos come to the same watering hole, they aren’t sure what to make each of other at first, but soon they discover they’re not so different after all. A few months later the babies arrive in surprising new colours, and a beautiful rainbow family of roos is formed!
On the surface, this is a fun, light-hearted picture book teaching colour and colour mixing in an Australian context, but on a deeper level there is a multicultural inclusion message expressed in a subtle yet poignant way for those paying attention.
