Baby Loves Shapes

This colorful, chunky board book is just the right size for little hands to hold, and the thick, sturdy pages encourage baby to turn them on her own. Inside, your child will see photographs of real babies playing with familiar toys on one side, and delightful Baby Einstein artwork on the other that includes a shaped flap for baby to lift. As your baby listens to the rhyming text, you can help her lift the flap on each illustration to see what shape is hiding underneath the picture to encourage her recognition of the “shape of things.”

Tie-in Activity: Simple toys your baby probably has in her toy box are a fun way to explore the properties of shapes. For example, which shapes roll? The trucks and the balls may roll, but what about the blocks? No need for formal lessons, discovering through talk and play is the best way!
