In this spritely children's book for children 2 and up, Alda's exquisite photographs put on display the parade of colorful people, places, animals, and things which pass in front of our eyes. The only appropriate response to this cavalcade of sights and delights is the spiritual response of wonder. Looking at these photographs, we are astonished by the beauty of the ordinary.

This book ends with a great question that could become a nighttime ritual for children: "So many colors filled my eyes while I was out today. My favorite one?" How would you answer?
