The Lovereading4Kids comment
In his time as Children’s Laureate, Anthony Browne introduced the Shape Game. Invented when he was child and played it with his brother, the Shape Game is a feast of imagination as one person draws a shape and another turns it into a picture. Here, friends Frida and Bear draw shapes for each other and turn them into some unexpected and entertaining pictures. ~ Julia Eccleshare
Kids love to read and share books and (draw!) from an early age and so in addition to our Lovereading expert opinion some of the younger members of our Lovereading4kids Reader Review Panel were also lucky enough to read and review this title.
- Phoebe Carter, age 6 - I loved it so much, it made me play the game. When we played the game, I couldn't think of anything to draw, but that was okay. I just drew anything. I LOVED IT!!!!!' Read full review >
- Holden Morris, age 6 - 'Frida and Bear both love to draw, and so do I...sheets of blank A4 paper are no longer blank for long in our house!' Read full review >
- James McNichol, age 5 - 'A wonderful book for a child just learning to read.' Read full review >
Frida and Bear by Anthony Browne, Hanne Bartholin
Anthony Browne and Hanne Bartholin celebrate the power of imagination and the importance of creativity in this delightful picture book that invites the reader to join in and play the shape game with them.
Frida and Bear both LOVE to draw - but what? First, Frida draws a shape. Bear adds to it and turns it into a picture. Then Bear draws a shape for Frida as the game begins again.
