Bloomsbury Publishing, 2018. ISBN 9781408880517
(Age: 2+) Recommended. Board book. This is the fun story of Bobo the panda and his friends as he explores the things around him and what shapes they are in a lift the flap book.
Bobo is celebrating his birthday, and his new tent is a triangle, his pass the parcel is squares; what other shapes does he find during his party?
This book can be used to encourage the reader to look at what other shapes they can see in their immediate surroundings as well as looking at everyday items and identifying the shapes that are there.
The flaps in this book are large so that little fingers can help turn them.
I recommend this book for 2+
