Carter Higgins is brilliant at teaching young children concepts in a fun and unique way. Her book CIRCLE UNDER BERRY won a Publisher’s Weekly award in 2021 and teaches colors, shapes, and location/arrangement of objects in such a unique way. SOME OF THESE ARE SNAILS is a similar type of book.

In this larger board book, kids will find shapes that also look like an animal with Eric Carle-like illustrations. Kids will see colors and shapes and how those shapes can also be animals or the shapes together can also make another shape.

Your child can also choose the biggest or the smallest shape on the page or which tiger has the most stripes or which item is the wiggliest on the page. Babies and toddlers will love the clean pages with just the brightly colored item and older toddlers and preschoolers will love learning the concepts on the pages. Kids who are ready to start reading can start with the simple words on the pages and the repetitive text.

This board book is appropriate for babies through preschoolers and will stand up to numerous readings due to the heavy pages and board book style. Don’t miss this new addition to Carter Higgins’ books!
