Geometry Genius

An interactive guide to shapes for 5 to 8-year-olds, this bright and bold lift-the-flap activity book helps children understand the properties of 2-D and 3-D shapes. Shapes are an important topic for early learners, and this visually appealing book will make it a lot of fun, too!

Our thoughts: This book has been perfect for our 6-year-old. Such a great way to get him thinking about shapes in our everyday world, and all the geometry concepts, easily explained. 

Available on Amazon HERE.

MW Children’s Dictionary

A must-have children’s reference source with more than 35,000 words and 3,000 full-colour illustrations specially created by DK’s celebrated design team and Merriam-Webster’s renowned language experts.

Our thoughts: A good Children’s Dictionary is a must-have for the home. We love the full-colour illustrations and photos in this one, with everything children need for back to school. Because little ones need to get back to basics, forget Google and screens for a second, and immerse themselves in a good book. 

Available on Amazon HERE.
