Sample text:

Thanks for reading to the young children in your life.  As a mother and grandmother, I found I tended to teach the basic shapes and colors.  I’m not sure why I stopped there, but in talking to other parents, it seems like that is a common trend.  

When I became a full time nanny, the little boy I cared for loved shapes more than just about anything.  Literally, oval was one of his first words.  We read, did puzzles and other activities that made learning fun, and he enjoyed every minute, so I kept going in the teaching of shapes.

By 15 months old, he knew ALL the shapes in this book in various mediums.  He couldn’t say them mind you, but he could accurately, find them, every time.  Oval was one of his very first words.  I learned a lot from him and how much young children can learn.  So don’t be nervous about teaching very young children the more advanced shapes, just make it fun.  



I also found this shape puzzle ( that was very helpful as it brought in the sense of touch, introducing another sensory experience to the learning experience. 


Another project parents can do to teach children about shapes is go to a craft store and find either some foam padding, or a sponge, and cut out shapes.  Use some tempura paint, and let children use these as stamps, and paint on paper a collage.  Fun, messy project that reinforces the lesson.



If you enjoyed this book or received value from it in any way, would you be kind enough to leave a review for this book on Amazon? I would be so grateful.  Thank
