The Wild Truth About Being YOU: Alex Mitchell Encourages Self-Expression One Color At A Time In Her New Book
"My Colors Inside" is a tender and colorful poem picture book by Alex Mitchell, who encourages fearlessly expressing ourselves like "wild" children in order to recover lost feelings of who we are deep down inside.
Madrid (I-Newswire) February 20, 2014 - Rendered in rhyme and colorful imagery, "My Colors Inside" shows a little girl, who unafraid to express herself, vividly changes colors in sync with her feelings. With huge expressive eyes, she impishly looks up from the pages and lets her true colors shine for all to see. Her eyes are none other than the author's own, pasted on to create the illustrations. And so, in this her second book in a series of poem picture books, you'll find Alex Mitchell herself looking up from the pages, as if to nudge us to see if we too want to be "wild" again.
"I wrote this book pondering the wild truth that there exists only one of me and one of you on this entire planet. This means from the outset, no one can be better at being me than me, or you than you," the author reveals to us in her closing commentary. She goes on to say, "And the last time either of us was genuinely, boldly, and shamelessly being our true selves was when we were children. So, it's time to show our colors to the world once again. For what we lose on our way to becoming grown-ups is the feeling of who we are deep down inside and the freedom to express ourselves."
All the pages of "My Colors Inside" are reproduced from hand-painted originals by Alex Mitchell. This book's creative spirit, style, and timeless message are alluring to all ages. A complete translation into Spanish is included.
"My Colors Inside" is available from Blurb.com ($24.91). Book preview and purchase information available at Alex Mitchell's Blurb Bookstore. More book information also available at Alex Mitchell's website.
