"There comes a time in life that every child has to start learning, there is no point going through life not knowing what a square is – how will you know what your house looks like. The great thing is that for toddlers, learning can be great fun. Grabbing shaped blocks and shoving them into a box, or a book that tells you all about numbers. There are so many edutainment books for kids that you may just find yourself overwhelmed, especially if you buy an entire collection of books; shapes, colours, numbers, letters, animals etc. A book that covers all these subjects and that also great fun would be ideal – enter ‘Dotty's First Book: Colours, Shapes, Numbers’ by Becky Baur.

‘Dotty’ does what it says on the cover, but also a lot more. Each double spread covers a separate subject and although it may start on the traditional colours, shapes and numbers, it also moves onto body parts and opposites. As someone who has read in recent years many education books for children, it is impressive to see so much crammed into one book, so well. There is something to be said about concentrating on one area, but do you really need a page per shape? Baur proves that you can cover them all if you have an impressive double spread that looks nice. It may be worth being specific in the very early months, but once you child moves onto knowing some things, this all-encompassing approach really appeals to them.

It helps in no small way by ‘Dotty’ being such an attractive book. On a simple practical level it is perfect for the market. The hardback version is sturdy with a strong spine. Each page has a small hole in it that peaks into the next area, the hole shaped like a balloon on the front cover holds particular fascination. The illustrations have a naïve feel and are easy to understand. Baur has managed to make the book appeal across several years by having simple objects such as shapes, but also cramming the book with interesting things to explore i.e. clocks.

‘Dotty’ may not really be the first book that will fascinate your child, but it could easily be the first truly educational book to do so. Learning about many different subjects is wrapped up in some great illustrations and contained within a book that is just pleasant to hold. Why take eight books of the shelf, when you can take one?
