Pre-school learners can practise their reading, numeracy and shape-recognition skills with this enormously entertaining lift-the-flap book. In Shapes, the reader is asked to answer the questions about shapes around the edges of the pages and then lift the flaps to see if they got the answers correct.
The book moves from introducing basic shapes to talking about how many sides they have and how different shapes can be used together. The design and interactivity of the book is such fun that young children won’t even realise they’re actually learning!
The book was designed in consultation with Jo Payne, a British primary teacher, blogger, published author on teaching and expert in children’s education.
