“Everything I Need to Know Before I’m Five” is the ultimate concept book. It has it all–the alphabet, counting, shapes, colors, opposites, seasons and weather. With bright colors and fun photography, Everything I Need to Know Before I’m Five is engaging and educational. There is no narrative, it is just pure concept and imagery. This is not a book to be read cover to cover. It is a book to be browsed, and talked through, concept by concept. When I read the book with my 4 year-old niece, she enjoyed the numbers and opposites but did not have the patience to read the entire book in one sitting.
Whether your child is learning these concepts for the first time or reinforcing their knowledge, this book is a great way to explore concepts together.
