Get ready to follow a young driver in his car as he takes us on the road to explore shapes. You need to bring your finger along for this so you can trace the lines and the curves and even pinch a circle!
This is an interactive approach to teaching children shapes. As your child sees a circle, perhaps hearing it called a circle for the first time, there is an image of a circle and then there is an image of a button- a common object your child knows very well...and it's a circle too.
Finger tracing, finding the geometric shapes in the world around you, and finding out that shapes can have 6 sides or 8 sides all work together to make this an entertaining, intriguing math book for our young learners.
