“I liked it because it is very different to most books. There are no words and you can open each side from the middle to make lots of different shapes and patterns.” – Abbie Collings, age 5, for lovereading4kids.co.uk

“ingenious! My two year old loved this book. She knows her colours already but this book introduced her to shapes and improved her counting. The format kept her interested. A great book all round.” – lovereading4kids.co.uk

“It’s the coffee table book of kids books… My 2 year old really enjoys this book and I think he’ll learn lots from it.”  -lovereading4kids.co.uk

“Simple, yet ingenious, chunky book that as it unfolds, encourages youngsters to find out about 2D shapes and colours, and do some counting along the way… Playful, engrossing and educational” – redreadinghub

“A simple cover image does not do justice to this unique title” – Achuka
