Review: Think Squares!: A Lift-the-Flap Color and Shape Book by Karen Robbins

Preschool children will find this book's colorful art irresistible as they lift the flaps and learn analytical thinking skills. Ten flaps are uniquely designed with squares that reveal the hidden image underneath. Think! And then lift the flap to see. Teachers and parents can test children on colors, counting, size, differences, beginning reading, and comprehension. Think Squares! will increase language and math skills, along with developing small motor skills and hand-eye coordination. Toddlers and preschoolers will have hours of fun playing with this interactive book.

I reviewed the Think Circles! book in this series yesterday, and pretty much everything I said in that review applies to this book as well.

The concept is excellent because you can use this book to teach or review colors, shapes (square), and numbers.

Guessing what the items are is a fun game for kids. I mean, after the first reading, kids will already know the answer so it's not as fun, but the book can be read multiple times anyway because there's other things for the child to identify.

Again, I feel like the only thing that is missing here would probably be a starting sentence to set the scene and/or a concluding sentence to round everything out.

He liked this just a little bit more than the Think Circles! book. He was very enthusiastic about the cat wearing 3-D glasses, robots, and presents.

He wasn't as enthusiastic about pointing out the colors, but he pointed out more objects in this book than when we read Think Circles! I think it just so happened that there were more objects here that he liked.
