Colours are one of the keys in creating a book especially when aimed at a children audience. In children’s literature we must be very careful with the use of colours because they could distract the reader’s attention from the important aspects of the story. If children’s stories have some dark connotations, colours usually have very low saturation and darker shades.
Depending on the kind?of story and the purpose the book sets, colours may increase a little more. If the story deals with a difficult topic, the author may choose to use stronger colours so that the book is not loaded with sadness or anxiety and may opt for more vivid and vibrant tones.
Especially for children, colour stories capture a lot of attention and stimulate visual perception and eye colour development.
