Welcome to the wonderfully patterned world of Checkers and Dot! This sweet and striking series of board books has been designed especially for babies and tots. With high-contrast, patterned art for developing eyes, simple but memorable rhyming text for reading aloud, and cute-as-a-button characters, J. Torres and J. Lum have created engaging first books that little ones and their loved ones will want to cozy up with and read again and again. A simple, sturdy, and stylish new series for those just beginning to look, listen, and learn.

Checkers and Dot begins with a hello and introduces the title characters and their pets, as well as patterns and shapes, before we say good-bye.
Published Reviews
Publisher's Weekly Review: "Checkers, a boy wearing a checkerboard vest, and Dot, a girl in a polka-dot jumper, star in a lively primer on patterns: "Say 'hello' to Checkers./ Say 'hello' to Dot./ This is their cat, Stripesy./ This is their dog, Spot." Newcomer Kim keeps things simple with a b&w palette and crisp illustrations whose pared-down, geometric aesthetic has a dash of Hello Kitty; patterns also appear in the background of each spread, emphasizing the concept. Checkers and Dot introduce select animals in Checkers and Dot at the Zoo, available simultaneously. Up to age 4. (Oct.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
