Overview

Dedicated to simple yet developmentally stimulating icons and experiences of childhood, this series encourages children to have fun discovering the world through the real world rather than through screen-based media. Blocks and their many forms—big, small, alphabet, colorful, plain—are celebrated in this book. Whether stacking or sorting, pondering or playing with them, fun and invention abound.

Reviews

“These books work on so many levels, with poetry to hear, pictures to talk about, and a powerful message. They give children just the sort of delightful and mind-expanding experiences they need, while leading parents to see the child’s world through a creative and joyful lens. Wonderful medicine for an overly electronic age!” —Dr. Robert Needlman, MD, associate professor of pediatrics, Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine, and cofounder, Reach Out and Read

“Bright, creative and perfect for young readers just getting introduced to books. Babies and toddlers will love these books as well as the others in the series.” —SocialCafé Magazine
