This wonderful book gives children a fresh and informal introduction to both 2-D and 3-D shapes, as well as to concepts such as tessellation, symmetry, and pattern. Superb photographs celebrate the wealth of creativity that is possible by combining squares, triangles, and circles, or cubes, cylinders, and cones. Hands-on projects help give children a firm understanding of shape and encourage them to use their own creativity and imagination.
