Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Jeanne K. Pettenati
This lift-the-flap book adds a dimension to simple color learning by using patterns (spotted yellow, swirly purple, splotchy gray, etc.) on geometric shapes and animals. Sturdy pages feature interesting and colorful patterns on blocks, wedges, cones, and rings that reveal animals with the same patterns underneath a flap. Preschoolers will enjoy the interactive features of this book. The end section provides a guessing game involving the shapes and animals previously displayed. The book will help children make the connection that unrelated objects might display the same patterns. The amusing illustrations depict playful animals.
