Orange Triangle Fox
Three concepts in one make learning fun!
Colors, shapes, critters—inspire bedtime or story time with this fun and educational concept book! Watch colorful forest animals take shape, like a red square owl and yellow star frog, teaching basic concepts simultaneously. A newly redesigned cover and rich, sweet watercolor illustrations make this book 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)
“Beautiful and functional, child-sized and childproof.” - Sue Morris, KidLit Reviews
