Very young children will love the friendly family pets illustrated in this set of 6 simple, award-winning puzzles. Each puzzle is made up of just 2 chunky pieces, perfect for a first puzzle aimed at children from just 18 months old. These are animals that many children will already be familiar with from their own homes; there is a shiny goldfish, a bright green budgerigar, a cuddly rabbit, a furry hamster, a cute kitten and a cheeky puppy. Each puzzle measures approximately 14cms x 14cms, and the pieces are big enough for toddlers to handle easily. At first, the challenge will be to decide which pieces go together, but as their hand-eye co-ordination improves, children will feel a sense of achievement when they can put the puzzles together by themselves. By talking to your child about the animals, you can help to expand their vocabulary. You can ask obvious questions: which pet is covered in feathers? Which pet has no legs? What colour is the cat? Then you can go on to talk about the animals in a more general way: do you know anyone who has a rabbit? Which pet has to live in water? What do hamsters eat? Which pet would you be most likely to take out for a walk? A perfect introduction to jigsaw puzzles for very little children.
