Curious George Shapes

Guest Author - Taisha Turner

Curious George Shapes by H.A Rey is the title, but a ghost writer pens the board book. The ten page board book helps toddlers, and preschool and elementary kids learn shapes. Why not learn shapes with Curious George? Juveniles can laugh and smile while learning. Learning is not a chore with Curious George Shapes.

One day, Curious George notices different shapes around him. However, he wonders, what are the names of these shapes? The curious monkey must discover the names. After a tour of his home and neighborhood with an adult, he recognizes rectangles, squares, circles, triangles, etc. George does not only recognize the shapes, but he knows names. For example, Curious George knows the painting is square.

Children who love Curious George will love learning with the little monkey. Curious George learns his shapes while walking. At the book’s end, the author helps the parents or caregivers, have a knowledgeable walk in the home or neighborhood. Parents or grandparents show the door is a rectangle and why? Depending on the television, it is a square or rectangle. For hands on activities, allow children to trace the bottom of a plastic cup for a circle. A tracing of a toothpaste box produces a rectangle.

The learning of shapes helps kids develop math skills. The knowledge of shapes is very important when studying geometry. Okay, I am a little ahead, but one gets the idea. Curious George Shapes by H. A. Rey is a good board book to give a child a great start!
