Spotted Yellow Frogs
Fold Out Fun With Patterns, Colors, 3-D Shapes, AnimalsBook - 1998
Once again this best-selling author-illustrator delights toddlers with an irresistible lift-and-peek format that turns learning into pure fun. Each spread features a colorful geometric shape sporting a distinctive pattern. With the flip of a gatefold, the patterned shape becomes a merry troupe of similarly patterned animals engaged in giggle-producing antics. Peek under a striped orange cube and discover a striped orange tiger daddy overwhelmed by playful cubs. A swirly purple wedge reveals a bevy of butterflies, swirly purple wings aflutter as they vie for a sip of nectar. And while toddlers explore the eye-pleasing visuals, they'll take an important first step toward reading as they begin to associate pictures with words.Spotted Yellow Frogs introduces a new animal, pattern, shape, and color on each of its eight fold-out spreads. Two bonus spreads containing eight more lift-and-peek opportunities unfold to over three feet long and provide hands-on guessing game fun and a spot-the-errors challenge.Matthew Van Fleet lives in Chappaqua, New York.
