Everything around us is composed of basic shapes. You’ll find circles, squares, rectangles, and triangles at home and on the street, and they’re also part of other much more complex shapes. We use some to help us communicate, and we wear some others to make ourselves look more attractive. Believe it or not, some can even save our lives! Do you want to know what other things shapes can do? Look around you and immerse yourself in the fun world of shapes.

Different approach: a book that explains the main concepts of shapes and geometry in a clear and comprehensible way.
Teaching aid: an introduction to the world of shapes for the first grade children, turning geometry into an interesting and attractive subject instead of a scary and boring one. First glance into basic shapes—triangles, squares, circles, etc., and their properties.
Attractive format: a fully illustrated title that resembles more a picture book rather than a text one. And it also contains activities.
Powerful motivation: shows a real-life usage of shapes in our everyday lives. The readers will find out that shapes and geometry are used unconsciously without even realizing it. Practice explains geometry, not the other way around as commonly taught in schools.

Chosen as a Children’s Book Council Hot of the Press book (August 2023)
