Bear in a square
There is no real ‘story’ in this book but it is a good book to teach children numbers, shapes, and even colors through various activities the bear does and the places it goes.
The colors and illustrations are vivid enough to capture a child’s attention (not to mention that an adult would
be equally captivated too). The shapes are quite easy to find to keep the child motivated and not get frustrated. After only a few reads, children learn to identify the shapes.
Though I like the other bear books from Barefoot better, this one is definitely a good book to read.
