Nous avions emprunté ce livre pour faire écho aux petits trous du livre "J'aime" d'Emmanuelle Bastien que nous avions lu précédemment. Malheureusement, ni moi ni Lou n'avons été emballées par les p'tits carrés. A 15 mois, je pense qu'elle est un peu jeune pour apprécier ce livre.

Nous retenterons l'expérience peut-être plus tard !
Relying on different sizes and numbers of squares and rectangles, the author stretches young readers' imaginations. Because there are two options provided, they can start to identify shapes as they appear in objects all around them. As are all the books I've read by this author, this one is visually appealing, filled with bright primary colors, and fun to examine, giving its readers the chance to make their own guesses for what the shapes can be.

Board book. The squares on the front cover (blue) are cutouts to the following page, and that trend continues through the whole book. Bright colors and blocky illustrations were appealing to 6 wk old Joe.
