Matching Puzzle Cards: Numbers
Here's the concept: two matching puzzle cards will each show, say, one object to make a match. For the next two matching puzzle cards, one will show one object and the corresponding card will show two objects (similar backgrounds and such will also help the child connect these cards). The next two matching puzzle cards will each have two objects. The pattern continues up to ten. This way the child not only grasps how many the number is, but also what numbers come before and after that number.
Matching Puzzle Cards: Animals
The animal card set offers more than simple identification. Matching pairs of cards show animals in both photographs and drawings. Kids must learn to recognize the animals' features in both formats and put them together. Animals featured include horse, cow, sheep, goat, pig, fish, and chick.
Matching Puzzle Cards: Colors
In the color card set, kids are invited not only to identify colors, but to make connections as they pair related objects in each featured color. Match a white chicken with a white egg, a red pail with a red shovel, an orange umbrella with orange rain boots. This set includes not only the colors typically seen in color concept books, but more unusual hues like turquoise, lavender, and maroon.

Publishing behemoth Random House is the largest English language publisher in the world, with books of all kinds including the best in fiction, nonfiction and children’s literature. Random House first made international news by successfully defending in court the U.S. publication of James Joyce's masterpiece, Ulysses, setting a major legal precedent for freedom of speech. Beginning in the 1930s, the company moved into publishing for children, and over the years has become a leader in the field. Random House entered reference publishing in 1947 with the highly successful American College Dictionary, which was followed in 1966 by the equally successful unabridged Random House Dictionary of the English Language. It continues to publish numerous reference works, including the Random House Webster's College Dictionary.
