An art piece or coffee table book for kids (of all ages)… this book celebrates the world of color through the eyes and voice of our inner child. (Think ‘Seuss’ with a camera.) 

I don’t make a single penny* by selling this special edition… the prices below cover cost of materials only* and my time is donated.  This book was originally written/created for dear little Alexander… whose fascination with color inspired me to start shooting in color once again.  I am so very glad that I was able to give  this book to him while he was here on earth… and share with you a glimpse into the inspiring nature of our inner child. 

“We made bookmarks last year for the service that listed things about Alexander including his favorite things and books. ‘Colors’ by Carolyn Collins is on that list.” ~Dan Dodson, father of little Alexander 

*Please buy the book, and then redirect your savings to the Alexander Michael Dodson Scholarship Fund established in his memory.  When you click on the link, you will see instructions for donating online or by check in Alexanders memory.  While at the site, you can see pictures of Alexander, visit his own personal website, and read more about his short life… and about his ongoing legacy of sharing with other young children. 

“From the moment Alexander was gifted with ‘Colors Are More’, he loved reading it and we loved reading it with him.  The book was made even more special because it was created for him.  The colors are brilliant and a fun way to teach a young child about colors and the way they fill the world around us.  All kids young and old will enjoy this book for its color, its story and wonderful photography.” ~Michelle, Alexander’s Mommy

What readers are saying…

 “I felt the most childlike light reignite inside of me as I looked through those pages.  My heart leapt with glee at every turn of the page.  Colors Are More is a whimsical, beautiful book for children and for people of all ages.  Carolyn has captured and expressed a book of wonder, and delight with color, through her eyes.”  ~Dee Hill 

“Fun!  This book opens wide for the imagination of children learning about colors and/or photography.”  ~Deborah Driscoll 

“I simply love this book.  I bought it for my 5-year old son and told him that it was written for him.  My son loves to have us read it to him so much that he can now actually read a bit of it himself.  Fun pictures for kids because they can relate to the images as part of their everyday life.”  ~Nelda Jones
