One, Two, Buckle My Shoe is a book with a new twist on a classic nursery rhyme. Young children will learn to count from one to ten as they recite this favorite rhyme. Colorful abstract shapes transform into playful circus scenes with the turn of a page. Watch as the two polka dots magically become a clown's shoe; see ten different colored circles transform into juggling rings. The grand finale comes to life in a spread where the circus performers entertain, amaze, and amuse.
Bright and clear numbers (numerals and words) help toddlers learn to count in a way that's never been so much fun. Come on into the big top and enjoy.
Square die-cut windows offer clues about what comes next in this Big Top twist on the classic nursery rhyme. The opening spread places one purple square opposite a die-cut that frames two yellow circles. Turning the page reveals a polka-dotted clown's shoe, with the purple square becoming the buckle ("Buckle my shoe"). Later, five diamonds and six stars become part of circus elephants' colorful blankets, and gatefold flaps close out the book, showcasing a singing, ice skating "good fat hen." Watching abstract images turn into concrete shapes should please toddlers, and the inclusion of the words and numerals for each number cements the concept. Up to age 3.
