Research Notes
Blue Animals is essentially a simplified version of my highly-acclaimed book Why Are Animals Blue? The simple text was easy enough to write, so finding just the right selection of photos was the most challenging part of creating this book. Luckily, Mother Nature didn’t let me down.”
“The texts are brief and meant to reinforce color concepts, and the photos are clear close-ups. Because of the books’ simplicity, children will feel as if they are really reading, and they’ll pause to explore the engaging illustrations.”
“These books feature a picture of an animal on one page and the description, e.g., "blue fish," on the facing page, though there is one longer phrase in each book. The color photographs are vibrant, and the format will benefit early readers. Reading list, websites.”
