Animal Squares: Portraits & Profiles (FT Minis Series)

Note: Animal Squares is currently being reimagined for a larger book/ebook. But our mini is still available for purchase.

Our 4x6 Minis are casual, staple-bound books that feature a simple format & size that kids really like! Here's what to know about this Mini:

  • Animal Squares is fun, incredibly easy-to-do & opens up the creative mind, which is so valuable at any time, but especially right now.
  • It focuses entirely on animals, because like a lot of kids, we're huge animal-lovers!
  • And, yes, we know they're rectangles, but Animal Rectangles just doesn't have the same ring to it.

Note: you can save on this book when you get it in our Furious Think Minis Multipack

How it works

  • On the left page, kids create an image based on how they interpret a given title.
  • On the right page, they have the opportunity to write a brief profile of that animal (like what a narrator might say about that animal in a nature documentary).
  • There are also blank titles for kids to create their own ideas.

This book - like the series - is flexible.

It's good for in-the-moment acts of creativity, but also for longer stretches of dedicated brain time.
