I hope that True Colours, will not only be read by or read to a child, but that it will encourage children to draw pictures, make scrapbooks, act, dance or sing, using my stories and poems, just like Chloe was doing in my story called, 'Chloe learns about Colours,' which would make True Colours an interesting book for a child to work with and read at home. True Colours is not only for children, but also for the young at heart, those who can still remember their own childhood! The book has been written in two parts, with a story of eight chapters in Part 1, relating to my childhood at a boarding school for girls. Part 2 consists of short stories, each accompanied by a poem, a poem that a parent could read to their child, in a very short space of time! The last story in Part 2, is about my life as an evacuee during World War 2 .
