I believe it’s important to make learning meaningful. Like any parent does every day – counting the objects, or identifying shapes around them. Our youngest (2) went through a phase of identifying the triangles wherever she was. That’s what we want for our numbers and shapes, that children will start identifying the number 42 or a twin helix when they see one. I mean truly – how cool would that be!
We’ve developed different back-stories for the new books: Nerdy Numbers is set at a birthday party and Sci-Fi Shapes is all about an imaginary astronaut adventure.
