Paper play is both creative and educational fun that children can't get enough of. In constructing easy to make shapes, children create a fascinating world, while developing dexterity and spatial imagination. In other words, the cut-outs presented within make Big Ideas for Little People the most engaging activity book you can introduce to your child. The animal and vehicle shapes found on these pages can be created by your child without any help from an adult...and no need for glue or scissors. The patterns, clear instructions and pre-made pop-out shapes make it easy for little hands to manipulate these fun shapes. The simple stories on each page are an added attraction and suggest how to make the paper models come alive! These three magnificent books are an occasion for children to create their own toys. With the first book, children will be encouraged to discover a farm: ripening fruit in the orchard, vegetables growing in the garden, mooing cows, bleating sheep, grunting pigs and cackling chickens. In second book, they will learn the secrets of wild animals through short descriptions placed amongst the illustrations. And finally, in the third book, motor vehicles and machines will be presented-cars, lorries, and heavy duty machines amongst others. Reading about farm animals, wild animals and vehicles will give parents a great opportunity to join children at play and spend some quality time with them.
