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 match the word and color at the top to the correctly colored item at the bottom.

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.
