Board Book Review: The Missing Bouncy Ball, The Lost Race Car, The Vanishing Baseball Cap
It almost reminds me a bit of an Old Spice commercial where the actor pops up in random places talking about the product.
We received these books in exchange for an honest review.

Emma has lost her favorite bouncy ball in the park. Can our deadpan detectives, Fox and Goat, find it for her?
This toddler’s version of Sherlock Holmes is guaranteed to both engage and entertain young minds.
Jayden can’t find his new race car. Detective Fox and Goat are on the case! Join the sleuths as they search his house for clues, and learn new concepts along the way.
Even the youngest minds will understand this strikingly illustrated story, and many may even solve the puzzle before the detectives do!
Dapper detectives Fox and Goat are on the trail!
These books make me chuckle. I love these two detectives. There’s something really funny about the way they are drawn into the scenes. It almost reminds me a bit of an Old Spice commercial where the actor pops up in random places talking about the product. But instead of selling a product, they are cleverly describing the object we are looking for while showing differences and how to identify those differences. It’s essentially a really cute and clever opposites book! But it also works as a mystery, as well. Each new thing we find to compare to our missing item, we learn something new about it. The race car is red, not white. It has four wheels, not two… etc. Then, at the end of the book, we have a clue guide, that lets us go over the clues that helped us identify the missing item. This is a really cool and useful addition for further learning and reading!
