Review with Giveaway for The Kaleidoscope Kids (US Only, Ends 04/21/13)

The Kaleidoscope Kids is a fantastic learning tool for young children. This colorful and delightful story written by Terry P. O'Grady and illustrated by Rick Barrett helps your children learn their colors, shapes and numbers. What I really liked about this book is that so many children's books seem to focus on children learning their letters and this one avoided that! Plus, it is silly and imaginative and what child doesn't like that?

Daniella was excited to read this book on our recent trip to Florida for Easter! She really enjoyed flipping through the pages and trying to identify what she could and "read" the story to herself after her big brother read it to her!

Brandon also read it to her as bed time story! She loves to snuggle up with him while he reads to her. He really likes to read to Daniella. She has been learning her shapes much faster since we introduced her to The Kaleidoscope Kids! She can now identify circles, triangles and squares consistently. She had already been identifying colors fairly well. Now we are starting to focus on numbers more. She can identify numbers 1, 2 and 3. Hopefully, with the help of The Kaleidoscope Kids, she will be identifying even more soon!

Here is a short blurb from The Kaleidoscope Kids's website about the book so you can understand it a bit more:

This book was developed as way to help children to learn their colors, shapes, and numbers. The unique characters of this book were conceptualized as each having a shape, color, and number so that children can see these concepts together. 

Each character is introduced with their shape, color, and number. There are also a number of objects on each page to practice counting. The hope is that this book will make learning these concepts fun, engaging, and easy for your child.

This section of their website also allows you to Meet the Characters!

You can also order a paperback or e-book version right from their website! For $1 off the Book Price, you can use the code: gnhc. a Rafflecopter giveaway
