They also need to recognise geometric shapes as well as elementary comparative measurements and concepts of position. Each book in the series has a skills checklist at the back to help monitor progress in the development of concepts. The series is an ideal tool to help develop foundations in key learning areas for preschool children. The books are designed for preschool educators and for parents who want to help with learning at home.
