A-B-A-B-A-A Book of Pattern Play by Brian P. Cleary

Book of Pattern Play

This book helps children understand what a pattern is with fun rhyming text and lots of visual illustrations: “It’s sort of an arrangement of colors, shapes, or things, in a way that is predictable as in the row of rings. See the colors? Green, red, gold then green, red, gold green, red. Once you catch on, you can guess exactly what’s ahead.” The end of the book includes skip counting by 2s, 5s, 10s—an idea you can expose them to now and help them be ready for it in kindergarten.
