This book is a perfect way for children to learn all about shapes and patterns. Eight common shapes are introduced with their names and features and there are lots of ideas for adding patterns to pictures. The activities provide endless pen control practice, and the wipe-clean pages allow children to re-visit each activity again and again. Part of the increasingly popular Key Skills series, the Early Years titles support foundation skills learnt in nurseries and schools. A fold-out page at the back of the book includes notes and tips for grown-ups and a useful letter formation page, which can be left open as a guide. Durable wipe-clean pages and special pen allow children to complete the activities again and again until they feel confident.
