This enticing set of 5 sustainably sourced and FSC approved beech wood viewers will prompt children to explore their environment with new enthusiasm and focus. Encourage children to use them around the setting to find items of a similar shape or to focus attention on things they choose to investigate. How many colors can they see in the tree bark? How would they describe the shapes on a leaf? How many spots does the ladybug have? As children focus their attention on the details they see, their language and concentration skills will develop. The set includes circle, square, rectangle, triangle and hexagon (approx. 6 ¼ inches tall).
