Comments for Shapes

Baby Genius ShapesShapes: 10/14/06

I know of many parents who don't like the DK board books. They complain that these board books are just scrap books of photographs with no plot and no educational value. True, the board books for babies are just nice looking photograph collections with each page having a different theme, but Sean and I both like these books. Sean likes to categorize things and I am a very visual person so I like to look at the pretty pictures while helping Sean learn about them and now, read the words describing them.

In the case of Shapes, each page illustrates a different shape. The shapes illustrated this time are square, circle, triangle, heart, star, oval, rectangle and diamond. Square and circle are probably the best pages as they have the most examples and the pictures used are of things Sean has had direct experience with. The heart page is probably the weakest as the things shown don't have to be heart shaped and I don't think Sean has ever seen any of those things heart shaped outside of the book.
