I just got DS#1's (3 years old) $67 books. It's a set if 4 (numbers, colors, shapes, words), teaches them everything in English & Spanish, and has an interactive website to go along with the books. The man that sold them & brought them to me was sitting on the front porch with Mann going through the books. They have a section in the shapes book for rectangle, triangle, trapezoid, hexagon, pentagon, ect. DS#1 turned it back to that page and told the man every single shape and pointed it out. The man was impressed, he said he's never had a three year old, newly three year old at that, be able to do that and he was going to LOVE his books.
I've had to pry them out of his hands and they come with posters to hang on the wall :)
Awesome! My dd turns 3 on the 3rd of September and she scored very high on her 3year old physical. Her doctor was very surprised at how well she talks and everything she knows already. She knew all her shapes and almost all her colors and how to count to 5. I was a very proud mama that day.

I wish it was that easy with my DS. He is behind in school and no matter what I do to help him he just doesn't get it. It has been stressful. Dd just seems to catch onto things much faster for some reason.
<blockquote><b>Quoting redneck mamma:</b>" DS is learning slower than DD is. He doesn't talk much at all and he is almost two. He knows where his nose is at along with other people's noses. He says dada and thats pretty much it."</blockquote>
Maybe boys just take longer to catch onto things lol.
Sorry that became a post and run. I have 4 of my nieces along with my boys (9, 4, 3, 2, 1, 10 months). I was very proud :) he's normally very shy with strangers lol. He talks to his pedi like he's know her since he was a seedling lol.
