I love everything that Britta Teckentrup and every thing that Big Picture Press does and I love that they are working together. Both Teckentrup and Big Picture Press have superb design values making for beautiful books that are perfect for gift giving. With Where's the Pair? A Spotting Book, Teckentrup follows up on The Odd One Out: A Spotting Book, with two rhyming stanzas that tell readers what to spot.
Teckentrup's illustration style is crisp and playful and her palette sophisticated. She uses colors you would want to do your house in, but that also work perfectly in a picture book. There are the expected animals, like cats, dogs and frogs, and then there are the yaks, otters, toucans and dragonflies.
Teckentrup does not make it easy to spot the pairs, either, which makes Where's the Pair? A Spotting Book fun for parents and kids. And her rhymes are wonderful! "A romp of otters gathers to play, diving and swimming and splashing all day. Now it's time to nibble on their favorite dish! Which matching otters have each caught a fish!" Where's the Pair? A Spotting Book is a must have, along with all of Teckentrups books!
