4.0 out of 5 stars -Learning Some Basics
By J. Aday
With the turn of every page your child is asked to identify shapes, count the shapes and guess which holiday corresponds to the illustrations. Children will be captivated by the colorful pictures illustrated by Samantha Bell. The lessons at the end of the book encourage more interactive learning opportunities.
Because the book has several types of interactive activities the child can grow with the book and as their intelligence develops they can try more difficult tasks. I recommend the book to parents of young and learning children.
