One Piece of String

by (artist) Marthe Jocelyn

tagged: imagination & play, size & shape
Description

One piece of string comes untied from a parcel and changes into a spider's web, a ropy updo, a layer of snow on a birdhouse roof, and other surprises.

Illustrated using Jocelyn's delightful paper collage, this wordless board book invites little ones to follow along and discover that each spread is made up of one single piece! This is a book that will inspire the youngest readers to see their own expanding worlds as a collection of interconnected shapes and colors.

Editorial Reviews

"Jocelyn's collages are alive with colour and textures, and they invite their young viewers to not just find the string or button but to linger on the pages' details. Though the books' board book format suggests a preschool audience, art teachers in schools might wish to acquire them to use as exemplars for divergent artistic thinking. Highly Recommended." Reviewed with One Red Button.

— CM Magazine

"Jocelyn's paper collage illustrations are beautifully textured and colourful, incorporating pattern and silhouette to great effect…It also expertly supports visual development in babies, facilitating focus, tracking abilities and colour recognition as they take in all the details contained in Jocelyn's illustrations. One Red Button and One Piece of String are delightful books that lay the groundwork for children to blossom into thorough and thoughtful readers as they develop."
