Hello, Red Fox (Aladdin Picture Books) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This interactive book introduces complementary colors to young readers. Little Frog has invited all of his animal friends to his birthday party, but when the guests arrive, all the animals are the wrong color. When readers stare at each animal for ten seconds and then look at the white facing page, they will then see the right color. Full-color illustrations.

Synopsis:

Stare at a single color for several seconds and then move your eyes to a white space. You will see a faint glowing image in a different color, the first color's opposite. This delightfully simple and funny birthday story, with animals rendered in Eric Carle's brightly colored collages, introduces the concept of complementary colors. Full color.

Synopsis:

Hello, Red Fox has something for everyone. Preschoolers will enjoy the delightfully simple and funny birthday story, old and young alike will love the challenge of trying to see the opposite colors, and teachers can use the book as a jumping-off point for discussions on a variety of topics, from art to biology.

Synopsis:

It's Little Frog's birthday, and Mama Frog gets a big surprise when the guests show up for his party — all the animals are the wrong color! Little Frog tells her she's not looking long enough, and he's right.
