The Pokemon Company has announced a new series of books aimed at teaching preschool-age children early learning concepts like the alphabet, numbers, shapes, and colors. Two of the “Pokemon Primers” are now available, with two more to come.
Starting today, you can find Pokemon Primers: ABC and Pokemon Primers: 123. The announcement includes a few sample pages, where kids can count four Pokemon or five Squirtles (which officially makes a squad). Each book promises more than 100 little flaps to open, because small children love little flaps. Each of the board books costs $13. Two more books, Pokemon Primers: Colors and Pokemon Primers: Shapes, are available to preorder as well.
Of course, the books also aim to familiarize young readers (and their parents) with Pokemon as well. Along with the usual learning tools like letters and shapes, each book includes a pronunciation guide for every Pokemon cited. They are Pokemon Primers, after all.
