Looking to reinforce learning concepts like colors, shapes, or numbers? These novel board books have split pages, so kids can flip the separate parts of a page to find the correct match.
Each page has a word on the upper left with the corresponding shape, color, number, or other item directly across from it. Below, the split pages allow for flipping through all the pages, until they find a match in the bottom section.
Kids can also hold the bottom pages in place and find the matching word and illustration on the top pages, so the fun works in both directions. With only one word per page spread, It also helps older kids learn simple words for the same concepts, so the learning can continue for even longer.
These books come in a variety of topics, including the two we own, colors“>colors and shapes, as well as words, numbers, food, animal sounds, and motion. You can also get a set with four of the most popular titles.
Featuring the same colorful illustrations as Carle’s hugely popular The Very Hungry Caterpillar, these books have bright bold pictures and simple black text to keep the focus on fun and learning.
