Mudpuppy World of Eric Carle, Brown Bear 4 in A Box Puzzle Set
With four different puzzles in one box, the first job at hand is to sort the puzzle pieces by color. Each puzzle has a distinctive color on the back of the pieces. Together, you can count the pieces after they are sorted. There should be 4 brown pieces, 6 red ones, 9 blue, and 12 green. Obviously the 4-piece Brown Bear will be the first and easiest. After that, the 6-piece Red Cardinal Bird, then the 9-piece Blue Horse, and finally the 12-piece Green Frog. So, this is a suite of beautiful images by picture book artist, Eric Carle, with four levels of difficulty. The sturdy pieces are big enough for preschoolers to handle. A nice way to connect characters from a favorite book to an activity that extends the book experience. Marked 2-5, we’d say save this for preschoolers.
