Orange Triangle Fox
Colors. Shapes. Critters! Three concepts in one make learning fun!
Inspire bedtime or story time with this fun and educational concept book! Watch colorful native forest animals including red square owl and yellow star frog take shape, teaching basic concepts simultaneously. Rich, sweet watercolor illustrations are a delight for sharing over and over again
“In this triple threat (at least as far as concept books go), Cincinnati-based author/artist Jones makes a strong debut as she explores seven colors, shapes, and animals. On the opening spread, the words 'brown circle hedgehog' appear within a white circle at left; at right, an adorable cartoon version of the animal sleeps contentedly on its back, its body the shape of a circle. Elsewhere, a 'red square owl' stares off-page, as though trying to remember something, and the jointed legs of a 'yellow star frog' give the animal a five-pointed outline. Jones’s clever portraits ooze personality, and will appeal to children and book-buying adults alike.” - Publishers Weekly (starred review)
“As a set, Orange, Triangle, Fox and Bunnies Near and Far help young children learn, or reinforce, their numbers, colors, and forest animals... Both of these books are nontraditional in form, but very much traditional in content. Little ones can learn about the numbers one through ten, and about colors, shapes, and animals. Four important elements your child needs to learn, packed into two adorable books with designs by Sarah Jones. Beautiful and functional, child-sized and childproof.” - Sue Morris, KidLit Reviews
