Toddler-PreS—Bright graphic illustrations dominate in these companion board books. In Shapes, each shape is introduced and shown in a variety of sizes. The following spread gives examples of the shapes in the real world, such as windows and doors. The book also attempts to explain three-dimensional objects that can be formed from each shape. Colors devotes four pages to each hue, showing a variety of objects. While the illustrations are busy, children will enjoy the colors and pore over the pages again and again.

A concept board book invites little ones to explore and name colors; companion volumes do the same for shapes and numbers.Eight colors take center stage in this visually appealing book. Red, yellow, blue, orange, green, purple, brown, and black are each given four pages, each filled with bold and stylized but readily recognizable representations of objects in the corresponding color. There are some interesting choices for a few of the objects. The lobster and crab are red, for instance—their cooked color, not their living color; gooseberries, a fruit not many children are familiar with, are green. Companion volume Shapes shares a similarly pleasing design aesthetic. Here, squares, triangles, circles, rectangles, and ovals are the main characters, with a fox and a mole playing the role of presenters. Going a step beyond most other shape concept books, Reiss introduces three-dimensional forms, such as squares making cubes, triangles making pyramids, and circles making spheres. And in Numbers, typical (six birthday candles; 10 toes) and not-so-typical (a five-lobed horse-chestnut leaf; 16 pigeons) objects that demonstrate numbers are arranged cleanly on the page. Humans of a variety of skin colors share the pages. All books will be looked at and looked at again by children with their adult readers or on their own. Basic yet striking, this book and its companions make fine additions to the ever expanding concepts bookshelf. (Board book. 1-4)
