This puzzle is perfect for tiny hands with easy-grip handles on top of each piece. Caregivers can say the names of each piece as the child plays with it and tries to place it. Even if the child isn't successful in completing the puzzle, just the language participation and interaction alone is worth it. During thee first six or seven years are when children form the synapses between brain cells and do most of their learning. They're like a sponge! So, give them as much education and positive interaction as you can. This is just another great tool to help.
