From the time a child is born they are learning…whether that is learning to roll over, learning to their shapes or learning physics…learning is an important part of our lives no matter what age we are! In the past month, we’ve been enjoying some new books for the youngest learners in our homes. Little Groovers Touch-and-Trace Early Learning books are just right for children ages 0-2.
“Colors and Shapes: Touch-and-Trace Early Learning Fun” and “First Numbers: Touch-And-Trace Early Learning Fun” are both written by Angie Hewitt and as you can imagine from the titles, they are ideal for helping your youngsters learn colors, shapes and numbers. In addition to learning these fundamental and basic things, the Touch-and-Trace books will also develop hand-eye coordination, help to develop motor skills and boost overall learning through the interactive play that these books will provide.
The Touch-and-Trace books have been especially fun for our 2 year old! He loves using his little fingers to trace the grooves on each page – which are in the shapes of circles, triangles, squares, and of course, numbers. All the color-filled pages help make it easy to learn the colors as well. Each of the books are just so FUN! They’ve been perfect for our toddler – and our 4 month old little munchkin doesn’t like to “read” them yet, but if you hold it up for him to see, he sure starts kicking and waving his hands around in excitement. 🙂 In addition to being simple, fun and interactive (all things that are important if you want to keep the attention of a baby or toddler!), they are also board books which makes them durable. The Little Groovers books are a wonderful addition to a toddler’s bookshelf and they would make a great baby gift as well. They get a thumbs up from us!
We have really been enjoying these books too! My 3 year old is really interested in learning shapes, letters and numbers lately, she told me the other day “Mom I’m getting stronger ‘cuz I’m doing letters!” The grooves in these books have been really helpful for guiding her in the formation of numbers and shapes. I especially love that there is a dot at the beginning/top of the number to show her where to start and then she follows the dotted line to the end where there is an arrow, it’s a simple concept that she grasped easily. The illustrations are very cute too, bright and not too busy so our 8 month old likes to “look” ( more like hit and chew) at them too. She is really interested in textures right now so the grooves in the book are fun for her too! Like Andrea I also love the fact that these are board books, with kids durability is key!
