Baby, Find the Shapes! (Indestructibles)
See all the shapes around the home in a book that’s indestructible.
Indestructibles is the trusted series for easing little ones into story time. Beloved by babies and their parents, Indestructibles are built for the way babies “read” (i.e., with their hands and mouths) and are:
Rip Proof—made of ultra-durable tight-woven material
Waterproof—can be chewed on, drooled on, and washed!
Emergent Literacy Tool—bright pictures and few or no words encourage dialogic reading
Portable—lightweight books can go anywhere, perfect for the diaper bag and for travel
Safe for Baby—meets ASTM safety standards
The book itself is short, but it features some scenes around the home made out of simple shapes and then asks baby to find circles, rectangles, squares, and triangles. Each image is full of bright colors and tons of the shape which they are asked to find. Even young toddlers can appreciate the simplicity of this book.
What I loved: Of course, the best feature of this educational book is that it can be chewed and cannot be torn (common problems for this age group), but I also love the easy to hold size and weight. Board books can be pretty heavy for small ones, so this is a much easier weight to hold. In terms of learning about shapes, it is a great introduction that will appeal to the youngest audience. There are plenty of things to point out on each page, and children can easily grasp the concept. I also really love that it features a family of color, which is important representation in books.
Final verdict: A delightful book for infants and young toddlers, bright colors, simple concepts, and indestructible nature make this a win for parents and little ones alike.
