    One thought on “Collecting Colour”

    1. This was a great read full of information about pandanaus palms, making baskets and learning about another culture in an entertaining and colourful way. I can see this book being a great resource in primary schools, especially as a fun art activity weaving baskets.

    2. brilliant artwork and delightful story that reinforces culture and introduces this wonderful functional art (woven baskets) to the non-indigenous. made me want to buy a basket when we finished reading
