The Lovereading4Kids comment

A simple but brilliant book that encourages children to learn about shapes, colours and numbers by playing with a series of gatefold flaps.

  • Abbie  Collings, age 5 - 'This book is very different and I liked finding the different shapes and colours.  There were lots of different shape patterns to name... There was lots to talk about and it was really good for the 3 year old's mathematical language about shape and colour (Abbie's Mum).'
  • Abidah Khatun and Amatullah Khatun, age 2 and 7 - 'My two year old loved this book. She knows her colours already but this book introduced her to shapes and improved her counting skills. The format of the book and flaps kept her interested. A great book all round.'
  • Oliver, age 2 - 'Unusual and interesting educational book for little ones. This book is really quite lovely.'


Shapes, Colours, Numbers by Dario Zeruto

How many shapes and colours can you find inside? Open the flaps and count the shapes one by one, then play with the flaps to create your own combinations. The choice is yours! This stunning book encourages the reader to explore and discover shapes, colours and numbers through play, inviting them to open a series of flaps, counting the different-coloured shapes as they go. A book without words that is full of delight, its simplicity speaks for itself.

It is THE website to use for narrowing down your search for any book. Definitely knocks the socks off any other book review website.

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!
