A colourful lift-the-flap board book to help children learn about shapes in a fun way. Each page features an illustrated scene full of spotting, naming and counting activities, from a circus show to a trip to the seaside and a summer picnic. Activities include lifting circular, triangular and star-shaped flaps at the circus to uncover the hidden performers, and searching for animals at the seaside by lifting beach balls, kites and umbrellas. With over 80 flaps to lift, each page has lots to spot and talk about, even for pre-readers.
