Spot the Differences because Not All Animals Are Blue

January 7, 2010 at 1:44 pm

Not All Animals Are Blue by Beatrice Boutignon; published by Kane/Miller Book Publishers, La Jolla, CA; 2009.

Pencil and watercolor images of animals appear on one page with descriptive text on the facing page.  Children have to discover which puppy doesn’t have spots, or which otter is practicing her diving.  This is a great book for interaction between parent, child and book.

This is definitely an early childhood book, although I imagine it being used with children with disabilities, especially autistic children.  Even children or adults learning English as a second language could use this to learn basic descriptors.
