My Thoughts on Treasure Island: A BabyLit Shapes Primer:
This book uses characters and scenes from the original Treasure Island story to showcase different shapes. I love the illustrations and the concept behind the book. The pictures are fun and the pirate theme is always a hit with little ones. Some of the shapes are hard to find within the pictures, but other than that, it’s fun to read to a baby or toddler. Older toddlers will have an easier time finding the shapes. It is also a good exercise to let the child search for and pick out the shapes themselves. As I mentioned in my review for Emma, these books make fantastic baby shower gifts. You can’t go wrong with any of the books from the BabyLit series.
