reviews ‘Shapes’ and ‘Colours’

Overall score:
“A unique and interesting way of discovering colours”
I am the kind of mum who likes a bargain and where possible I will buy things second hand especially books. However there are a few books I buy new because they are such genuinely interesting books which really appeal to children that I want to add my number to sales figures. The Hungry Caterpillar and Each Peach Pear Plum are two that fall into this category and I feel this book should be included in that group too. I have a four year old daughter, a two year old son and an 11month old baby boy. All of them enjoyed going through this book for different reasons. The baby on discovering pretty colours and animals/objects, the toddler taking the next step onto naming those colours and objects, then my school age daughter taking it to another level by discussing how the colours apparently change and what happens when certain colours are mixed. Even I was sucked in on seeing it because it is a genuinely beautiful book, so bright and inviting and with a nice little surprise which in nearly 5yrs of mother hood I have never seen before.

I have already recommended this to my friends, or I should say it recommended itself as my toddler has been showing it to anyone who has entered my house.

“Gorgeous book”
From the minute we got the book my daughter has not put it down. It is beautifully done with bright colourful pictures that draw the child in (and the parents!!). Very cleverly designed with see through pages that change the pictures on the other pages. would recommend especially with Christmas coming up. Fantastic book.
