Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature
This book introduces the early concept of shape, and is designed for adults and children to share together. Starting with lines, patterns, sides, corners and angles, this book explains key words and ideas that children will learn in their first few years of school. Activities such as "I Spy" and shape puzzles are included to reinforce concepts. Each page includes a "word bank" that contains the new math vocabulary. Clear, colorful illustrations complement the simple text. A nice resource book to have at home to reinforce what a child is learning at school. Also, this is a useful addition to an early elementary classroom as a resource that can be used from preschool through second grade. 2000, Barron's Educational Series, $5.95. Ages 4 to 8.
