My picture book – shapes My picture book - shapes is an electronic children’s book for tablets/IPad and computer/Mac. It’s a picture book, made of photographs, aimed towards the youngest children aged 0-4.
My picture book - shapes is part of a series of picture books, made by Kids books AS. All the books in this series aim to stimulate children’s imagination and expand their understanding of the world. In a fun way the children can explore different words and concepts in their everyday life, and through play and dialogue they can develop their language and listening skills and prepare for their understanding of the written word.
Studies show that parents who point out words and letters to their children as they read aloud boost the youngsters' reading skills when they are older. The parents can also expand the child’s understanding of a word/concept by pointing at the photograph and saying the word out loud. After a while the child itself will imitate the word and grasp the understanding of the concept.
The photographs in the books are colorful and recognizable and they have the written word attached to it.
My picture book - shapes shows different shapes, in both one- and two dimensional pictures and photographs, such as circle, triangle, rectangle and diamond. By studying the pictures/photos and talking about the objects and their form the child develops an understanding of different shapes and that many objects in our surroundings can be categorized in these terms.
