Review: Jane Foster's Pets

Jane Foster's Pets is a easy-to-read book that introduces babies and toddlers to pets.

Inside the covers your children will discover familiar pets like a black and white dog, a ginger cat with yellow patches, a gold fish and birds.

This book also introduces less common and exotic pets–reptiles, rodents and a few farm animals.

The retro style illustrations within this book are reminiscent of books from the 1950s and 1960s or Dick Bruna's Miffy.

The illustrations of each pet are bold and bright with a background of one block colour. On the opposite page is a single, large and bold black font that labels each pet. Behind this text is a background of one colour, with a two tone pattern eg. stripes of dark and light yellow.

There are many other books that are part of Jane Foster's series, with themes that cover dinosaurs, colours, Christmas, summertime, ABCs, numbers and so many more.
