Children's Literature -
When most of us think of children's books, what comes to mind are storybooks revolving around human or animal characters. But what if the star character were a circle? Or a series of numbers? Or colors? These are the "stars" of what are called Concept Books, in which abstract concepts are fleshed out for children between the ages of 3 and 8. Books showing objects to be sorted teach the concept of kind. Books showing circles, squares, and triangles teach the beginning of geometric puzzles and math. Books showing objects that are opposites begin to teach synonyms/antonyms. Concept books are building blocks for children struggling to construct a verbal and special world.
