Children's Literature - Judy KatshRoss offers a user-friendly examination of the nature, uses, and beauty of geometric shapes.

There are games to play, models to build, passages to read, art to create, and problems to solve. It's a 60-page math class-and what's more, it's fun. Part of the "Shapes in Math, Science and Nature" series.
