The First Foil Poetry Haikus board book series debuts with Love by Thea Feldman and Seasons by Ida Ageledis, both illus. by Michelle Berg. Colorful foil shows through die-cut ""windows"" in each spread, and flaps cover additional events. For instance, a girl sits on a park bench with her cat on her lap and a red foiled bucket at her side; opposite, a flap reading ""Warm licks from my dog/ The cat purring in my lap/ A pet of my own,"" lifts to reveal a dog catching a blue foiled ball. The first explores love and affection among family (and pets), friends and community; the second explores the four seasons and features foiled butterflies, beach pails and raindrops.
