Stare at a single color for several seconds and then move your eyes to a white space. You will see a faint glowing image in a different color, the first color's opposite. This delightfully simple and funny birthday story, with animals rendered in Eric Carle's brightly colored collages, introduces the concept of complementary colors. Fu...

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Cool, and Educational! I have always loved Eric Carle's books, but this one is a particular favorite. First of all, it involves a fox (which happens to be my last name), but it also handles a subject most children's books don't touch - opposite colors. You could even use it for older kids to teach about the cone cells in your eyes, but for little kids it's a really fun "optical illusion" that helps them see the opposite colors. It's art, it's science, and it capitalizes on a child's curiosity.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fun and informative! This book is beautifully illustrated. The bright colours catch the attention of boys, girls and adults. It is wonderful to snuggle up with your child and read as well as a great way to introduce colour and opposites. It is also thrilling to see animals change colours before your eyes and to get into the science of why this might be happening. A must read for all--thanks Eric Carle!!!
