Review: This book is a simple and energetic. It uses very simple words and has fun cut outs in the pages with shapes. It has a guessing game throughout the book as you try to figure out what the shapes are making. Little children will love this interactive book and it is a great way for them to practice shapes and work on problem solving skills.
Activity: Practice shapes by cutting out different shapes and gluing them to popsicle sticks. Then with the popsicle sticks play a game of "Hokey Pokey" (stick your circle in, stick your circle out, stick your circle in and you shake it all about). It's a very fun way to get to know shapes.
