The Girl Who Heard Colors
What color is a dog’s bark? The ring of a school bell? Or the patter of falling rain? Just ask Jillian, because for every sound she hears, she sees a color! This eye-opening picture book introduces readers to their five senses and to something called synesthesia—in which one sense is also perceived by another sense. For some people, tastes make colors. And for others, numbers and letters have colors.
Many famous artists have been synesthetes, including Tori Amos, Duke Ellington, Jimi Hendrix, Lady Gaga, and Stevie Wonder. Marie Harris’s engaging text and Vanessa Newton’s lively illustrations make synesthesia easy to understand and celebrates each person’s own way of seeing the world.
