  • See and Spy...
    This book is among our family favorites from the Baby Einstein collection. The pictures are fantastic; simple with lots of bright colors which intrigued our 9 month old. The text is difficult for a beginner reader, but that's where parents come in! Buy this book; your baby will love it so much, that he will turn the pages for more!...more info
  • A must-have in a semi-toddler's book-shelve
    I bought this book to give as a gift to my friend's 2 year old daughter. I found it very good for a learning toddler, bright colour pictures with hidden shapes are good to spike up the interest for reading. The size of the book is right for them to hold and read, also the pages are hard to tear. I decided to buy this book for my daughter when she becomes a toddler....more info
  • Wonderful!!!
    My daughter is in love with this book and she is only 8 months old! The poetry is wonderful and this book also incorporates counting and colors with the shapes ("find 5 more shapes like mine" etc). The illustrations are great and keep her attention. All of the Baby Einstein series are wonderful!...more info
  • Awesome
    When I was majoring in education, I bought a bunch of books for my classroom. I bought this book because I thought it would be a creative way to teach SHAPES.

    Each page has a little 4 line rhyme that really got my attention. It was kind od sing-songy and describes the shape.

    The pictures are very bright and colorful. The pictures are also of the shape the poem was about.

    The best way to encourage a child to read is to have books in the home....more info

  • Great book for toddlers
    My son is 1 1/2 and this is his favorite book. He loves to open up the flaps. This keeps him very entertained....more info
  • Even infants love it
    Even when my baby was under one month old, he would stare at the colorful pictures on the pages-- he would stare at the left page and then the right. I knew the book was stimulating his growing brain and I was giddy with excitement!! Now that my baby is 8 months old and he likes to hold the book himself, I appreciate the rounded corners and thick cardboard pages (so baby won't get paper cuts). My baby likes to gnaw on the book so I guess it's also a great teething toy!...more info
    My daughter is obsessed with baby einstein and this is her favorite book. It's actually the 2nd one we've bought. I would recommend any of their products to anyone....more info
  • Circles, Triangles, Squares and more....
    The poetry may not be Shakespeare or even Jack and Jill, but it hardly matters. My almost 3 year old son loves this book. There is something about the colors, shapes and animals that he cannot get enough of. He asks for it every night, and we have owned this book for over a year now.

    For myself, I particularly like that there are other things in the drawings to talk about. For example when ovals are discussed, there is a a red bird (Cardinal) and storm clouds. In the circle pages (there are 2 pages per topic) there are many kinds of vegetables to point out.

    Overall a good beginners book for shapes, and though we have now moved on to hexagons, my son and daughter still enjoy this book....more info
  • A must have!
    This book is colorful, simplistic and really does teach little ones about shapes. This was one of my son's favorite books. I'd recommend it along with the one about counting. If you read these to your child starting at age one, they will most likely learn them by age two....more info
  • Fun book
    My 4 month old loves this book. The bright pictures and rhyming prose make this a hit with him. Love it....more info
  • This is an outstandingly book!
    Julie Aigner-Clark is a genius! Her inventive products, exceptionally creative, are designed to entertain children while they learn. "See and Spy Shapes," is no exception. The cleverly written text is metrical in style, and teaches shapes and counting in an imaginative way - through "seeing and spying", the object by means of example. For instance, the reader sees a rabbit sitting in a garden with various items scattered about, and the poem on the left side of the book reads, "A CIRCLE is a crazy thing it has no sides, just one round ring. You'll see a CIRCLE on my nose - now find five more beneath my toes." The FIVE circles beneath the rabbit's toes are: a radish, a head of lettuce, an onion, a bug, and a watermelon.

    Each page of this little board book features a different poem, animal, and shape. Additional shapes include: triangle, square, oval, rectangle, star, and diamond. The illustrations are brightly colored, and are highly contrasted to the background, creating emphasis to stimulate babies interest, while providing lessons on shapes, numbers and counting, colors, animals and other everyday objects for preschoolers. This is an outstanding book! Birth and up.

    On April 28, 2002 amesiowa, reviewed the wrong book! She commented on "Puzzling Shapes: A Puzzle Book", by Baby Einstein, not "See and Spy Shapes."...more info

  • Amazing Book
    My 2 year old loves this book (he loves all Baby Einstein stuff - videos, books etc.) more than any other book/toy he ever played with. He learnt all the shapes in this book within a few days and recognizes these shapes anywhere he sees them, but it remains his favorite book even after many weeks. ...more info
