Imagine what it would be like to exist in each dimension. What can you do?  Where can you go?  What shapes can exist?  Ultimately, answering these questions can lead to a discovery of scientific concepts beyond the daily reality and above the mundane routines of life. This book is targeted for children in upper elementary grades who haven’t taken any geometry classes at school yet.  The exposure to geometric concepts in this book is intended to help children get a head start on some vocabulary words and to be ready for geometry class when they do get registered for it.  There is an intuitive element to the drawings where children might understand in a scaffolding manner how dimensions work.   The illustrated suns are intended to draw out that intuition and show where directions go in each dimension.
