The Lovereading4Kids comment

An introduction to shapes – and shopping within this classic series that is perfect for learning to read. Old friends Ant and Bee are off on a shopping trip because their friend Kind Dog is coming to supper. Ant and Bee make a careful list; they don’t want to be distracted by all the tempting things on offer in the shop. Ant buys all the round things he has listed, Bee buys things in all kinds of shapes. What will happen at the checkout? Clever use of coloured text highlights the words that young readers can manage – and teaches them the names of the different shapes.
