Praise For Go! Go! BoBo Shapes

Both simple and charming, the high-contrast, boldly colored graphics make for delicious morsels of toddler eye candy.
School Library Journal
These sturdy board books with rounded corners are solid choices.

The glossy, dramatic artwork and the sturdy pages are a perfect combination for introducing BoBo and shapes to pre-school children.
The Go! Go! Bobo board books are bright delights, filled with pictures of a bouncy baby zipping through the air amid a whole series of shapes or colors. Basher manages to make the simple books extra-attractive in several ways. In Shapes, for example, he shows a basic square and then has Bobo bounce through wrapped square packages in front of which square dice are visible. A circle leads to a bounce through buttons and oranges; a heart, to heart-shaped balloons and strawberries; and so on.
