The Lovereading4Kids comment

One of a series of chunky board books introducing toddlers to everyday first concepts. In Colours, watch the lovable (but accident-prone!) Bobo bounce through bright, bold scenes, meeting red fire engines, blue butterflies and pink pigs on his way. Each spread is adorned with a big splash of colour, allowing children to identify and learn the colour. Further titles in the series include Numbers, Shapes and Opposites.

From Basher, the illustrator who showed the periodic table in a whole new light and gave us his fresh spin on physics, biology, astronomy, rocks and minerals, planet earth and chemistry, comes a series of chunky board books introducing toddlers to everyday first concepts.


Praise for The Periodic Table:

“I love science... It’s great to see a book making it accessible for young children. Science should be fun.” Damien Hirst

“An engrossing read” New Scientist

“This blending of science and art is pure genius.” www.writeaway.org.uk

“a creative bombshell … will transform the way you think.” TES

Praise for Physics:

“Quirky, fact-filled and fun… I defy anyone not to pick it up.” Sue Steel, Simply Books, in The Bookseller

“a little gem of a book that gives the low-down on this important subject.” Sunday Express

Praise for Rocks and Minerals:

“another outstanding title in the Basher Science series... this little book will have young rock hounds spending hours mining its contents.” Curledupkids.com

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