Shapes of Things – Athea
When children are learning new concepts, making learning fun is always a top priority. Books with vivid illustrations are always a great method for turning learning into play, and they provide parents and grandparents with quality time with their little readers.
Kids can learn the names of these shapes, and how to identify them, whether they be round, square, or oblong. Little ones also have the chance to make their own pictures using the new shapes they’ve discovered.
The images are pretty standard and it’s a thin book, but ultimately the lessons are greats for my littles ones. Caroline loves spotting the shapes!

The 48-page book is divided into two parts.
