Animal Spots and Stripes (Templar)

Animal Spots and Stripes (Templar) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With a bold palette, striking graphics, and a bouncing menagerie of animals, this pair of uniquely formatted lift-the-flap books introduces young readers to the basic concepts of counting and patterns. Each is a boisterous, vivid trek of discovery, providing irresistible clues which encourage lifting the flap—a hands-on, educator-approved strategy of uncovering and learning concepts. Whether it's finding out just who's next in Animal 123, or exploring differently patterned creatures hiding in the habitats of Animal Spots and Stripes, these ultra-sturdy books provide not just an intriguing way to communicate essential building blocks of learning, but also offer an energetic playground of sheer delight.

Review:

"This interactive board book features various striped and spotted animals, while cutaway flaps integrated into the digital collage art conceal an animal with the other patterning. Four 'spotted dogs' run along a green grove of trees, and beneath a tree-shaped flap is a red and orange 'striped cat.' Wide-eyed lemurs make the acquaintance of a spotted snake, and while three spotted frogs rest on lily pads, another leaps to slurp up a 'striped bug.' The chameleons featured in the final spread, break the interactive pattern and demonstrate that spots and stripes are not mutually exclusive. A clean design, peek-a-boo windows die-cut into the flaps, and cheerful depictions of the animals make this a diverting introduction to some basic patterns and wildlife. Available simultaneously: Animal 123. Ages 2 — 4." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.
